Toyota is looking to put a fuel cell-powered rover on the moon. The development is part of a recent agreement between Toyota and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) on a cooperation in international space research.
The creators claim that even given the limited amount of energy and tech that can be transported to the moon, the rover would still have a range of more than 10,000 km. The space agency is considering the launch of a lunar exploration mission with the rover in the 2030’s. The design for the space craft is still in the early stages, and only the size of 6 m length and height of 3.8 meters has been confirmed.
