UAE Rover Discovered on Moon by Hakuto-R Lander


New photographs released by NASA on Tuesday have revealed the location of the UAE’s Rashid Rover’s crash site on the moon. The rover was carried on the Hakuto-R Lander built by Japan’s ispace inc. and crash-landed last month after the lander lost contact with mission control. NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter captured 10 images around the landing site, some showing large pieces of debris scattered across the surface. The Japanese company will hold a media briefing on Friday to reveal reasons for the failed mission. The UAE’s Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre is already working on a second rover, called the Rashid 2.
