My rover’s name is Hope because of the hope of it landing on the moon and working to help us discover new things. The rover will use solar power. This rover has tracks for grip and a plow for pushing debris. The rover would use an electron beam moon duster and indium tin oxide mixed with paint to stop the dust from clinging to the rover and to get the dust off the rover. Two drum scoops, one on the front and back, dig slowly and balance the rover. The regolith is stored in the drums as the rover goes back to base. The temperature is controlled with heaters and radiators. Rotary joints are used on the booms, to make the wheels in the tracks rotate, to pivot the solar panels, and the plow to stop dust from blocking the joints. The rover is remote controlled from Earth.
