Detail About MCQs

NASA’s VIPER Rover, short for Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover, represents the agency’s groundbreaking robotic lunar mission. Scheduled to land at the Moon’s South Pole in late 2024, VIPER is tasked with closely examining the presence and distribution of ice and other resources in this region. As NASA’s first mobile robotic mission to the Moon, VIPER will analyze surface and subsurface ice at varying depths and temperatures across four distinct soil environments. Over a mission duration of 100 Earth days, covering three lunar day and night cycles, VIPER will navigate the challenging terrain of the lunar South Pole, transmitting valuable data back to Earth.
