The four-wheeled SPACE-BOT is a technologically advanced machine that provides the operational value on the Moon. It has a sensor that measures levels of regolith, camera lenses and a functional 360° turning head that provides visualization. The main exhibit is the mechanical arms which can store and grind the lunar soil without harmful effects. The first mechanical arm has the shape of a shovel with sharp teeth to embed into the regolith. It has a rotator where it can reach high speeds when digging. The second mechanical arm is shaped like a plunger which serves as a vacuum to capture the regolith material, which is stored in its combustion machine. This combustion machine is heated, generating electrical charges towards the lunar soil, keeping its harmful effects low. Once the tank has filled up, it is compacted and sent out as boxes through the back onto the main carrier.
