The 260-pound autonomous vehicle on six wheels will carry 44 pounds of payload, including a video camera to stream recording back to Earth in real time. The rover will operate on solar cells and a radioisotope thermal electric generator for three months featuring a telescope that will turn the rover into the first lunar astronomical observatory.
