Expedition is scheduled for 2029.
Toyota will create a rover with pressure inside the cockpit for the Japanese mission to the moon. The device will be able to transport two astronauts and will be self-managing. This was reported by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
According to the ministry, the rover will be able to travel up to 10 thousand kilometers thanks to solar energy and Toyota fuel cell technology. The conveyor will be the size of two minibuses and equipped with six wheels. The salon with an area of 13 square meters will be made habitable for the first time: astronauts will be able to stay there without suits and breathe.
According to JAXA, the rover will land on the moon in 2029. In a statement, the agency notes that he will be sent before the arrival of people and the device itself will get to the place of landing astronauts.
In recent years, the Moon has once again become the object of research for space programs in various countries. At the beginning of 2019 the first Chinese probe did land on the back side of the moon, and NASA announced the acceleration of training of people to return to the moon.
