This is Olympus, named after the home of Apollo and Artemis. I made regolith to test Olympus’s wheels. I tested 4 types of wheels. The wheel that worked was a rubber wheel with spiked tread. The spikes help Olympus stop getting dust in the wheels and help it climb. The shovel will be wide, after it digs into the moon it turns 180 degrees then dumps the dust into a container on the back of Olympus. The container is a cone shape and when Olympus pours the dust into the cone the dust and rocks are separated. When Olympus is full it will take the dust and rock to a research container. Olympus will run on solar panels. There will be a clear cover on the solar panels. When dust gets on the solar panel the cover will come off, be cleaned, then put back on.
