|Units or mass||6U|
|Status||Was semi-operational until 2022-11-17, 1 day (Connection was established as per official Twitter but low voltage and attitude control issues lead to transmitter being turned off as of 2022-12-23)|

Demonstrate the technology for low-cost and very small spacecraft to explore the lunar surface with a landing probe.
3 modules: orbiting module, retro motor module, and surface probe.
The CubeSat will also take measurements of the radiation environment near the moon as well as on the lunar surface.
Super-Small Solid Rocket Motor to deaccelerate 2500 m/s just before surface impact. Surface probe will have a semi-hard landing at about 50 m/s.
|Failure cause||Spacecraft was rotating rapidly and solar cells were opposite direction to the Sun. Transmitter turned off at the end of the pass due to low voltage and has not restored.|
