NASA Spokesperson Sarah Frazier announced that there was a communication problem with the spacecraft CAPSTONE, which successfully left Earth orbit the other day. Stating that they are working to solve the problem that caused the communication problem and to re-establish contact, Frazier stated that CAPSTONE has enough fuel to settle in the right orbit.

IT WAS TO COLLECT DATA FOR HUMANITY’S LUNAR JOURNEY

It is not known when the connection with CAPSTONE, which weighs about 25 kilograms, was lost, but it is estimated that the problem occurred after it left Earth orbit.

The satellite in the “CubeSat” category was expected to send the data it would collect to NASA, providing preliminary information necessary for humanity to land on the Moon again.

PLANNED TO STAY IN ORBIT FOR 6 MONTHS

CAPSTONE is scheduled to arrive at the Moon on November 13 and is expected to orbit the Moon for at least six months to collect data. The rocket was launched on June 28 from the Rocket Laboratory Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand’s Mahia Peninsula.
