We have seen the future of lunar rovers, and it’s the NASA Chariot. This vehicle features “six double wheels, each with independent steering, and the pedestal the driver stands on can rotate a full 360-degrees.” Click here for first picture in gallery.

That way the pilot can navigate the Chariot in any direction, and in a sense the vehicle really has no front or rear. The improved rover is part of NASA’s efforts to bolster its space assets as the organization plans to have an outpost on the Moon by 2020
