I designed a spacecraft whose main space is the cockpit to transport two astronauts who pilot the vehicle. This space is covered with a special hemispherical crystal that provides protection from space radiation, ensuring panoramic views, which is very useful in order to have the complete control of the surrounding space. At the back of the cockpit there is a step-down entrance-exit staircase.
The vehicle will be able to move either with the four double wheels which will have independent movement each to give it greater possibilities of movement on the uneven lunar ground, or with the 6 turbines that will take it off and land it and move it into space environment. The four of them are located on the lower surface of the vehicle and serve mainly for landing and take-off while the other 2 in the rear to push the take-off vehicle forward. Below the cockpit, in addition to the mechanical parts, there is a fuel storage tank which is fueled by the lunar base.In addition to these fuels, additional energy is stored for use by the photovoltaic panel that circularly surrounds the cockpit on the upper surface of the vehicle forming a ring. The vehicle has a drill with which we will collect soil-rock samples etc for research and experimentation. It also has five video cameras of the surrounding area, one of which is located on the lower surface of the vehicle for the purpose of video recording of the space under the vehicle as well as the monitoring and operation of the drilling rig. For the needs of movement on the dark side of the moon, it has 8 low-energy technology headlights around the perimeter of the vehicle and on the middle ring that separates the upper and lower part. Finally, the communication with the lunar base will be done with antenna-reception – data transmission.
