Meet the Believer Rover. It is powered by a nuclear reactor on the back. It uses a scoop that turns 180 degrees to drop the regolith into the back. It can also turn 90 degrees to access the drill. It is controlled by somebody on the base. It is made of carbon fiber to resist the heat, and uses nuclear reactor heating to survive the cold temperatures. The scoop can be used to plow away any obstacles in its way. It can carry about 2.5 kilograms of regolith. It goes at a speed of three miles per hour. In the front is the rover’s “brain”. If the reactor fails, it has a small electric battery on the bottom to bring it back home at one mph. This rover design might even work for future Mars missions. I believe in the believer.
