Viper Rover

NASA released an article about the Viper Rover being developed by Astrobotic of Pittsburgh.

Is this the rover we will use in this challenge?

I would hope so, they just got $200M USD to do just that.

My Team can play in a sandbox better than Astrobotic Technology, but they have way more knowledge most elsewhere than we do.

Bit late to answer this, but I think the planned rover is the MoonRanger rover, that is made by Astrobotic. The VIPER rover is just planned to be delivered to the Moon by Astrobotic, they are not making the rover.

Not so much yet as "made by Astrobotic", but rather as being developed by Astrobotic. It appears a lot is in flux as such currently. I guess that's we are all here on HeroX and more...
