Hey, Space Placers!
This image is the 1st received from the moon-bound Peregrine lunar lander in space. The camera is mounted atop a payload deck and shows Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) in the foreground. Astrobiotic wrote: “The disturbance of the MLI is the 1st visual clue that aligns with our telemetry data that points to a propulsion system anomaly.” Read more about the fate of Peregrine, now en route to the moon, below.
After a PERFECT launch, just a few hours later problems began and escalated to a point of a very likely failure for landing on the Moon.
We won't have to wait long for another Moon mission as 2024 has several coming.
