The American military-industrial company Northrop Grumman has demonstrated the concept of a future lunar rover.
While the project is at an early stage. They want to involve a number of automotive companies in its development. Northrop Grumman promises to provide NASA with a flexible and affordable vehicle design to make it easier for humans and robots to explore the lunar surface.
The company did not reveal all the technical details about the rover. However, astronauts are expected to be able to control it directly from the cockpit, as well as remotely. The device will operate on the moon for up to ten years.
The rover will be sent to the moon on the Nova-D lander, which is designed to carry cargo up to 500 kilograms.
The United States plans to return to the moon on a new mission in 2025.
