Map the hydrogen content of the entire South Pole of the moon, including within permanently shadowed regions at high resolution.
Map the hydrogen content of the entire South Pole of the moon, including within permanently shadowed regions at high resolution. Measure the bulk hydrogen content, up to a meter beneath the lunar surface, while the instruments on both Lunar IceCube and FLASHLIGHT will tell us about the very top few microns. Create the high-resolution maps of regional near-surface (top-meter) water-ice distribution across the entire South Pole of the moon.
On Nov. 28, NASA’s LunaH-Map spacecraft acquired its first star tracker image, showing the constellation Auriga and its two brightest stars, Menkalinan and Mahasim.
|Failure cause||Propulsion valve is likely stuck but otherwise operational.|
