Caption: The Crew Mobility Chassis Prototype is NASA's new concept for a lunar truck. Here, researchers are trying it out at Moses Lake, Washington, as part of a series of tests of lunar surface concepts. One feature is its high mobility. Each set of wheels can pivot individually in any direction, giving the vehicle the ability to drive sideways, forward, backward and any direction in between, which is important if the truck becomes mired in lunar dust, needs to zigzag down a steep crater wall or parallel park at its docking station. NASA is currently building the spacecraft and systems to return to the moon by 2020. *THIS IMAGE MAY NOT BE USED FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES SUCH AS ADVERTISING, OR IN SUCH A WAY AS TO IMPLY ENDORSEMENT OF ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE.*.
