My rover, Possibility, will help scientists on the moon. How she is going to do this is actually quite complex! She has long legs so as to keep the lunar regolith away from her body. The trapezoidal body includes sliding glass doors which will open when the cameras see the buckets which will be scooping up regolith with robotic arms. The computers are in and on top of the head because if they were any lower, the regolith would clog them. You know those buckets I mentioned earlier? You’re probably wondering how they work. When the doors open, the back of the bucket pushes forward on the regolith so it can slide into the body. Possibility gets her energy from solar panels that are connected to the body. I used solar panels because Possibility is going to be working on a part of the moon that always sees sunlight.
