by Msnbctv news staff

We now know the place NASA’s first-ever robotic moon rover will contact down. 

The ice-hunting Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover (VIPER) will land simply west of Nobile Crater, which sits close to the moon’s south pole, NASA officers introduced right this moment (Sept. 20). In late 2023, VIPER will fly to the moon aboard Griffin, a lander constructed by Pittsburgh-based firm Astrobotic that can launch atop a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket.
