        Meet ATHLETE, a Moon Rover

        This video segment from NASA features ATHLETE, a six-limbed vehicle being developed at Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory that NASA hopes to use on the Moon to carry cargo in the next decade or so. With wheels at the end of each limb, ATHLETE can roll on solid terrain. The rover can also walk on soft or otherwise extreme terrain with its wheels in a locked position. Each limb can also hold and power a tool controlled by a remote human operator.
