The Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAZA) and Toyota have teamed up to create a futuristic rover which they hope to land on the moon by 2029.

The vehicle will be capable of travelling 10,000km on the lunar surface while housing two astronauts. This vehicle will be pressurized allowing the astronauts to take off their suits while travelling over the moon. If they're not interested in driving the vehicle, it will be capable of self-driving all by itself.

Powering this vehicle will be a number of solar cells along with a new fuel cell technology Toyota has been working on.

If all goes well, this will make Japan among the small group of countries in the world to have landed on the Moon in 2029.
