Australia has agreed to build a 20-kilogram (44 44) semi-autonomous lunar rover to go to the moon in 2026 by NASA in search of oxygen.

NASA executive Bill Nelson said the deal strengthened relations with Australia and spanned more than 50 years with space exploration.

The deal depends on whether the rover meets the continuing conditions during its development
