Did you know that the LRV that traveled to the Moon moved thanks to two 36-volt batteries each, which gave it a maximum speed of 14 km / h? And that Micro Rover Sojourner , the first rover commissioned to analyze the soil of Mars , was a remote-controlled vehicle weighing 11 kilos? All this and much more is discussed in this interesting article by Alejandra Otero for Autopista.es.
The publication of the report coincides with the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of NASA , which, in addition to helping us understand the Universe, has contributed much to automotive technology throughout its history. And it plans to continue doing so with projects such as Pipistrel Virus , a flying vehicle capable of landing or taking off in short distances that reaches a maximum speed of 270 km / h in the air.
