This moon rover, called Armstrong 11, is named in reference to Niel Armstrong landing on the moon in Apollo 11, is made for getting the scoop. It has the same wheel configuration as the mars rover Perseverance to allow for agile movement. It is also solar-powered, so its operation would be limited for roughly 24 earth hours after sunrise and before sunset if it follows schedules followed by other rovers, depending on the battery. Of course, this would all depend on how much sun it can get. The arm is mainly used for “seeing" with cameras. The regolith is held in a container extending from the front, collected as the drum spins, and is kept from sticking by a “seasoned” coating on the rover.
