 Hey, Space Placers!

A fish-eye view of the Moon's surface taken by a color camera aboard Intuitive Machines' Odysseus lander. The Moon's grayish, rocky surface takes up most of the image, with small rocks and particles scattering as Odysseus makes its initial contact with the Moon. Odysseus takes up the top of the image; a broken portion of the spacecraft's left landing strut can be seen near the center, with the lander's complex machinery spread out above.

A news conference was held yesterday giving details of Odie as well as these two photos. I was unable to join the press conference as originally planned but you can get details here.

We learned today that Odie was still alive.

Let's hope for the best when they try to wake Odie up after the long lunar night.
