China has revealed plans to send a lander and a rover to the Moon in the second half of 2013. A rover will be carried by the Chang’e 3 lunar lander. 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.
