NASA’s VIPER rover will look for water ice on the Moon

NASA plans to send a golf cart-sized robot to the moon in 2022 to search for deposits of water below the surface. The VIPER robot will drive for miles on the lunar surface to get a closer look at what NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine has called ’underground pockets of hundreds of millions of tons of water ice’ that could help turn the moon into a jumping-off point to Mars.

Sounds like a very similar mission to the recently failed Vikram lander that India tried. Although the NASA version will undoubtedly cost a lot more.

The funny thing is that this would be NASA's first unmanned lunar rover making America the 3rd country to land an unmanned rover on the Moon...granted we might have been first if we weren't too busy landing manned rovers.
