Lunar Flashlight moon probe is in trouble and NASA has one month to fix it

A tiny NASA moon probe continues to battle thruster issues as it attempts to reach its destination, but there’s still time left to make a fix.

Lunar Flashlight launched in December 2022 on a quest to seek lunar ice. But on the way to the moon, the cubesat experienced thruster glitches on its mission to test a new “green” propellant. NASA officials downgraded its mission from orbiting to lunar flybys weeks ago. Yet the amended mission remains uncertain, agency officials said on Thursday (March 23).
