Google News reader Steve wrote to tell us when he can expect to see his Lego Land Rover land on the moon.
“In the next two years I will probably have the lander set up and ready to launch.”
Lego Land’s latest Land Rover, dubbed Land Rover 1.0, will be the first robot-built vehicle to land on a fully robotic mission to the moon, the company says.
The rover will also be the world’s first fully autonomous vehicle to make the journey.
The company is also planning to build a landing strip for the landers and launch pad.
Steve hopes Lego will also use its space-based robotics expertise to make its lander even more efficient.
“Its amazing how much we can save by just using the Lego technology.
The Lego system is going to save us a lot of money,” he wrote.
Lego is planning to send the land-based rover on a three-month test flight to the lunar surface in 2021.
If all goes according to plan, the rover will use its own parachutes to deploy the rover to the surface and then deploy a robotic arm on top of it to pick up the rover, which can be dropped off or dropped in the air.
The landing strip is about two feet high, which Lego says will allow the rover enough height to safely pick up its landing leg.
Lego will launch the landing strip on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base in 2019, and it will be flown on a Boeing CST-100 Starliner from Kennedy Space Center in Florida in 2021, according to Google News.
Lego says it will use the landing strips for up to two months at a time, and that the company has already had successful test flights.
The lander is expected to have a maximum payload of 200 pounds.
Lego Land has been working on a lander since 2010, and its initial prototypes were powered by a battery pack.
In February 2018, Lego unveiled its first humanoid robot, the robot Centurion, and in November 2018, it announced a $100 million funding round to develop robots capable of driving.
The project is being funded by a group of private investors including the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.
Lego has been in talks with NASA for a space lander, but has not announced any plans for a manned mission yet.
