The Lunar Scorpion is a solar powered rover that carries a good amount of regolith per trip. It has four triangular shaped tread style wheels that help it to move steadily across the uneven surface of the moon. It has a claw scoop that will grab regolith and empty it into the storage container. The large regolith storage tank has a roll top as well as a lower flap to help empty the container. Scorpion also has two cameras so that it can be controlled by astronauts on the surface as well as run on its own. There is also an air hose that can be used to spray the fine layer of lunar dust off of any of the important equipment like the cameras, solar panel, or wheels. The cameras and air hose will be able to move in all directions and can be controlled remotely when necessary.
