The NASA Moonstream concept is a design proposal for a future moon exploration vehicle. The NASA sponsored project called for a conceptual lunar rover for the year 2020. The Moonstream was created by Anthony Sims, an Art Center College of Design student.

The exterior design of the Moonstream was heavily inspired by nature, from the protective shell of a tortoise, aquatic form of the humpback whale and stance of the giraffe. The suspension and wheels are fully adjustable for height, camber and track. The wheels even have a unique ‘walking’ capability at slow speeds (similar to an insect).
