Spacebit, a UK based robotic rover start-up, has already reserved a second lunar payload quota to fly on the nova-c lander, which is planned to be launched by innovative machines in 2021, as part of NASA’s commercial lunar payload service (CLPs) program. Spacebit already has a berth on the astrobot Peregrine lander, which will fly to the moon on a Vulcan Centaur rocket in July 2021. < / P > < p > spacebit’s asagumo four legged Walker will fly in the first CLPs mission (NASA created the mission to find a commercial partner to transport experiments and payloads to the moon with private cargo prior to its Artemis manned lunar mission). For the second launch of the nova-c & quot; lander, spacebit is preparing a wheeled Rover that will carry a small NASA science module. Both wheeled Rovers and walkers are designed to help assess what resources are on the surface of the moon in support of the Artemis Project. < / P > < p > this will provide spacebit with a variety of opportunities to assess the geological composition of the moon, which is its main objective in carrying out these missions. Different Rover designs will also mean that it can better assess which rover is more suitable for this task. The 4-leg design is designed to allow the rover to better handle uneven surfaces, making it even possible to explore lava flow tubes and other cave like areas that may be suitable for construction as natural refuges and future lunar habitats. Google said the proposed media negotiation rules would put its free services in Australia at “risk”
