First Mission Rover Manifest: 

The bots are made of stainless steel, titanium alloys, and space-grade aluminium, and are equipped to gather lunar minerals that could be useful in future space mining. All electronic devices are positioned 0.8 inches directly above the soil. They are expected to independently perform coordinated functions and work on the surfaces of non-atmospheric space bodies. 

The mission includes 5 small robots, weighing less than 60 g each that will be catapulted onto the lunar surface. The nanorobots will take the first-ever lunar plasma temperature, electromagnetic and regolith particle size measurements.
