My Robot's name is The Lunate22. It is named after a bone in the hand called the Lunate that is shaped like a crescent moon. The 22 is for 2022. My robot will vacuum up the lunar soil, and collect it into 3 different test tubes inside under a flap. If the soil is too hard to vacuum, my robot will drill through it to break up the soil. The soil samples are collected by size through different sifters of small size first, medium, and big size last, which are on top of the test tubes to ensure that they are sorted by size. My robot also has a head with two cameras, so you can see what it is doing. The Lunate is remote controlled from Earth.The wheels will grip the surface to move the robot. Once all test tubes are full, you can pick it up.
