This lunar rover has special wheels to move on the lunar surface. The astronaut can drive it, but it can also be remote controlled from lunar base. The astronaut is in a chamber, this helps to protect from dust particles. The rover has an antenna that contacts earth and it has a camera that takes pictures and videos. The cameras can look up and down and this helps it to look everywhere. It has a robotic arm that picks up rocks and scoops soil on the ground and puts it in a small container on the rover. When the small container is full, the rover can dump everything into another big box which has a cover and a wheel. This box can be transported back to the base by remote control. The back of the rover has a large fuel tank but there is also one solar panel.
