3D Interactive - The Lunar Electric Rover

Concept image of the Lunar Electric Rover.

Now you can explore it in 3 dimensions to better understand NASA's new set of wheels for the moon.

This small pressurized rover is about the size of a pickup truck (with 12 wheels) and can house two astronauts for up to 14 days with sleeping and sanitary facilities. It is designed to require little or no maintenance, be able to travel thousands of miles climbing over rocks and up 40 degree slopes during its ten year life exploring the harsh surface of the moon. The rover frame was developed in conjunction with an off-road race truck team and was field tested in the desert Southwest with 140 km of driving on rough lava.
