LunaRoo

LunaRoo, something hopping is in the air

We did it! After some busy days and weeks we did it! We sent a lunar payload proposal to the Google Lunar XPrize team of Part Time Scientists.

It’s called the LunaRoo! It is a hopping science platform for the moon designed by our team here at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

The LunaRoo is a hopping robot designed to exploit the Moon’s lower gravity to leap up to 20m above the surface. It is compact enough to fit within a 10cm cube, whilst providing unique observation and mission capabilities.
