The Tesla Surveyor design is rather straightforward affair, with a compact spherical body and two high definition cameras for stereoscopic vision, just to make sure it doesn’t bump into Alan Shepard’s golf club. The Tesla Prospector is a somewhat larger, more traditional design that takes its cue from previous lunar rovers.

In addition, the Prospector will deploy several “microbots” that will carry out specialized scientific and artistic projects.
