A Schoolboy Builds Moon Rover for Helium-3 Search
Earth's satellite

Russian schoolboy built a model of a moon rover, aimed at search and exploitation of helium-3 deposits and other natural resources of Earths satellite.
      The invention is so small that it fits into a shoebox. The self-moving robot has eight wheels and is moved by means of electric stepping motors and two accumulators.
      The vehicle is maneuverable enough to make U-turns and can force obstacles by stepping movements, lifting four of its wheels. The vehicle is controlled by means of a computer programme, also written by the schoolboy.
      The invention, which development took 1.5 years, was recently awarded at the All-Russian Exhibition of young inventors.
