Moon’s Future Vision for Lunar Transport

With such a weak surface gravity, the Moon presented us with an interesting challenge when it came to designing methods of transport. Inspiration was taken from previous designs like NASA’s lunar rover, also known as the Moon buggy.

Astronauts in all three Apollo program missions drove the lunar rover. This four-wheeled, battery-powered buggy was cutting-edge technology during the 1970s and was primarily used to transport the astronauts, saving their energy and oxygen supplies for collecting rock samples to bring back to Earth.

For Moon, we have enjoyed developing our own sci-fi-inspired vision for lunar transport. Metaverse technologically is much more advanced than our own and vehicles will be powered by solar power and helium3.

Importantly, both resources and vehicles will be available as valuable NFTs that can be bought, sold, and traded with other Moonlanders.

The Metaverse Moon Buggy

Design and technology have come a long way since the ’70s. Moonlanders can expect their Moon buggies to have a futuristic design with self-driving capabilities. Specifically designed to operate on the Moon’s low surface gravity our buggies will have a range of 92km. Moonlanders will use them to explore the local lunar environment and get from point to point without any hassle.

Moon Rover Truck

Unlike the Moon buggy, we have designed our rover trucks to be large six-wheelers! Drawing on the same design philosophy they will drive further and carry significantly more cargo. The rover truck is the perfect choice for Moonlanders who want to explore the far corners of the Moon searching for the right place to set up a new base of operations.

The Lunar Railway

More than any other form of transport in Moon, railways will be essential for expansion across the lunar surface. They will provide easy access to the Moon’s most remote regions, such as permanently shadowed craters in the south pole. It will also allow Moonlanders to transport large quantities of valuable resources and importantly, as its network expands, it will begin to provide the transportation necessary for its own growth. Clever!

Finally, a tease of things to come. Look forward to taking off in futuristic aircraft, and our most remarkable development yet — teleports. Yes, you read that right, teleports! Welcome to the future, Moonwalkers!

Until next time, learn more about the development of Moon, or register your interest in our lunar land sale which is coming soon!

Moon is a brand new Metaverse built on Binance Smart Chain. It is inspired by lunar exploration and gives players opportunities to acquire NFT land plots, develop a new world, drive its economy and uncover the mysteries of the Moon’s dark side. Join Moon and start earning real-life revenue.
