A Brief Note on Rover Design

Priyanka Garg


Traditionally, the space exploration is accustomed to the use of orbiting spacecraft for the fact that, it is efficient in taking humans with the much needed amenities in bulk to other space environs.

However, their design prospects limit the capability to do more exhaustive tasks on erratic planetary surfaces along with making insightful and distinctive observations.

An urge to optimize accountability on planetary research was realized and a novel design of space exploration vehicle known as surface rover spacecraft was proposed which not only maneuver across the wide surface area of a planet as well as other celestial bodies but persuade many important tasks that seemed to be as forlorn as might expected to be.
