Junkin's Chariot doesn't bear much resemblance to the first-generation lunar rovers. "It challenges all the conventional wisdom of astronauts sitting as they drive. Our crew members will stand up, and we can carry more than two astronauts. The Chariot can move in a crablike motion from side to side as well as forward and reverse. It has six wheels instead of four wheels." (Courtesy Lucien Junkin)
