I drove a rover on a lunar landscape and felt like an Apollo astronaut

OTTAWA, Canada — I found a portal to the moon behind an ordinary office door.

The lunar rover “Max” waits in a huge facility painted black, ready to explore a simulated lunar landscape that sits next to the cubicle-filled offices of local company Mission Control. Surrounding the rover prototype is 4,000 square feet (370 square meters) of sand, providing a giant playground with landscape rocks, garden rocks, and numerous “craters.”
