Have you wondered what a rover is made of? Well, I hope I can answer some of your questions today! So, let’s start with some easy stuff. They are made of aluminum to give the rover its strength. If it was made of plastic it wouldn’t be as useful as aluminum. The rover also has an emitter. The rover needs wheels too, which are also made out of aluminum. To hold the wheels, there are axels. Well, we need energy from somewhere, right? That’s where the solar panels come in. The solar panels will have around 12 volt and 24 volts. It also has a high gain antenna to allow more of the transmitted power to be sent in the direction of the receiver. Lastly, it has a camera to prove and show visual evidence of what happened.
