Proposal art for MOONRANGER rover scheduled to arrive at the south lunar pole next year.
This suitcase sized rover will seek out and identify key elements for water and fuel. MoonRanger will sense the terrain, build maps on the fly, and navigate on its own.

Mark Maxwells work has been seen around the globe, and occasionally off it. From multiple exhibitions at the Smithsonians Air and Space Museum to the first art exhibit in earth orbit aboard Space Station MIR, Maxwells work for NASA and numerous other space agencies and private space companies have kept him busy along with his work in SF and game publishing. As a member of both the LOIRP Team (Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project) and the ISEE-3 Reboot Project, Maxwell earned merit badges in Techno-Archeology and Space Piracy. When this self-taught artist is not pushing pigments or pixels around, he's often found experimenting with loud, low frequencies on a Fender Jazz bass.
