Equity is the name for the rover because when there's a successful moon base it will be important to equitably share food, water, and air among the scientists, engineers, and astronauts. Equity has a large solar panel that shields the rover from dust and provides solar power. Small holes on the shield push out oxygen from the tank to remove dust. A robot arm controls a shovel for scooping lunar regolith into a bag with a retracting cover that stops the regolith from escaping. Astronauts access the bag by entering a code on the keypad. LOXIE the lunar version of MOXIE produces oxygen which is split between the converter and the tank. The converter turns the oxygen into energy stored in the battery for when there is no sunlight. There's one camera at the front, seven hazmat cameras on the bottom, and six wire mesh tires for movement. Thank you!
