Designed by about 50 students at Carnegie Mellon University, the solar-powered Andy rover can traverse rough landscape and survive the radiation and extreme temperatures of the Moon while exploring pits and caves for potential resources and future habitation. In 2014, the Andy rover won Google’s Lunar XPRIZE Milestone Prize in the mobility and imaging subsystem categories. Andy is named for CMU founders Andrew Carnegie and Andrew Mellon.
