The UK will send its first moon rover to the lunar surface in 2021.
A private company will send the world's smallest robotic moon rover, which will have legs instead of wheels and weigh just 3lbs (1.5kg), as part of a NASA-funded mission.
If it pulls it off, the campaign could make the UK just the fourth nation to successfully put a rover on the moon – both India and Israel have tried and failed this year.
UK start-up space company, SpaceBit, created and designed the robot and announced the mission at the New Scientist Live event in London today. (10th October 2019)
