Space robotics are the development of general purpose machines that is capable of surviving (for a time, at least) in the rigors of the space environment, and performing exploration, assembly, construction, maintenance, servicing. Space Robots can perform tasks less expensively or on an accelerated schedule, with less risk and occasionally with improved performance while humans doing the same tasks. The moon is the natural next step in the exploration of our own universe. Understanding moon better will help us understand our neighbors in the solar system. In this paper, a concept of exploration and cooperation robotics on the moon is discussed. The concept requires not only to extend the exploration mission on the moon surface but also to address a way to integrate the developed robotics with each other. Sharing the information between robots is one of a concept’s features to reduce lime and power consumption in the exploration process. Moreover, several challenges are discussed here, which prevent the concept from developing in outer space or on moon.
