Abstract

Oxygen production is very important in establishing a lunar space station. Oxygen atoms can be extracted from lunar soil and formed into breathable oxygen. This process has been tested on Earth, and it will be tested on an unmanned mission to the moon. A lunar rover is needed to collect lunar soil samples and return them to the processing station. The rover will be assisted by remote control, and will also perform other scientific tasks. This paper will discuss the design of a lunar rover that will be able to complete this task.
