Watch NASA’s VIPER moon rover conquer a lunar ‘obstacle course’ (video)

NASA’s new moon rover prototype successfully completed an obstacle course simulating the rugged terrain of the lunar surface. 

The rover, called VIPER (Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover), is expected to launch to the lunar south pole in November 2024 atop a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket. To test the rover’s mobility, engineers at NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland created a simulated lunar environment, including large rocks, steep slopes and deep craters.
