My robot picks up lunar regolith by magnetizing the soil into the containers in the bot. It also collects soil by magnetizing the lunar dust into the containers. My robot carries a good amount of soil per trip and is very fast. So, every hour it collects about 50 pounds of lunar regolith! That’s a lot! My bot deals with lunar dust by shining UV lights on it. And that is beneficial because it has solar panels, and the UV lights charge the solar panels. That is the Autismbot 3000
