Step Aside Moon Buggy, the World’s First Moon Motorcycle Concept Is Here

Posted by in category: space travel

Dresden-based motorcycle think tank Hookie has its eyes set on the moon. The company developed a drivable prototype for a two-wheeled lunar exploration vehicle. Named the Tardigrade, the vehicle is much lighter than your traditional moon buggy, meaning that the concept would be more cost-effective to launch to space.

“A moon buggy requires almost the same space as 3–4 Tardigrades,” Nico Müller, one of Hookie’s co-founders told us in an email interview. “The weight is much less than that of a complete buggy made out of steel.”
