bon voyage Danuri

South Korea embarked, with the help of a Falcon 9 rocket, on a Moon mission last week.

The Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter (KPLO) named Danuri will join spacecraft from NASA, India, and China. There's a lot of exploration happening of Earth’s neighbour.

It will take four months for Danuri to complete the journey using a ballistic lunar transfer trajectory. Tune in mid-December. The primary science mission should begin in February.

The Korea Aerospace Research Institute of South Korea has also signed up to join the NASA-led Artemis Accords.
