This tiny moon rover has a leg up on traditional spacecraft designs

Students at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands are developing the world’s smallest and lightest moon rover, called Lunar Zebro.

Named after the Dutch phrase for “six-legged,” Lunar Zebro will indeed have six legs instead of wheels, allowing it to climb taller obstacles on the moon than its wheeled counterparts can overcome. The rover will be the size of a standard sheet of paper and weigh about 5.5 pounds (2.5 kilograms).
