The payload RESOLVE (a collaborative effort by the Kennedy Space Center and the Canadian Space Agency and part of the Advanced Exploration Systems Program in NASA's Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate) is mounted over a lunar rover model, where RESOLVE stands for Regolith and Environment Science and Oxygen and Lunar Volatiles Extraction, and is the succeeding step in lunar exploration developed to find if there are prospective sources of water on the moon. The rover will be set free on the moon, where it'll drill the moon's crust in search of water. With time, the rover shall also be able to create a resource distribution map which'll show the best spots to pull out water.

The RESOLVE rover model is currently held at Hawaii, carrying tests on Mauna Kea (or the lunar landscape) in a nine-day long simulated assignment. Watch this video to know more-
