Release date:

Astrobotic's Peregrine Mission One is a lunar lander selected as the first of many missions under NASA's Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) program. Launched during Vulcan Centaur's maiden flight on 2024-Jan-8, it is supposed to make the first US lunar landing since Apollo 17 in 1972, however a fault occurred shortly after separation from the rocket, and the landing attempt had to be abandoned. It reentered the Earth's atmosphere just 10 days later, on 2024-Jan-18
