Private moon rover will try to survive the long lunar night

NASA has funded technology that aims to keep a moon rover alive through the long, frigid lunar night.

Pittsburgh-based Astrobotic is developing lunar communication and survival tech, which will be tested on a mission that sends the company’s little CubeRover to the moon. CubeRover is designed to last at least 28 days on Earth’s nearest neighbour, including surviving the 14-day-long lunar night.
