Japan launches ‘Moon Sniper’ lunar lander SLIM to space

Future Space

Japan’s ambitious lunar exploration mission takes off as the Smart Lander for Investigating Moon (SLIM) sets sail on an H-IIA rocket. Japan aims to achieve pinpoint accuracy in its lunar landing, marking a significant step towards becoming the world’s fifth country to reach the moon. Japan’s JAXA successfully launched its lunar exploration rocket from Tanegashima Space Center despite three weather-related delays last month. Japan’s ‘moon sniper,’ SLIM, is set to land within 100 meters of its lunar target in February. This $100-million mission follows two previous lunar landing attempts by Japan that ended in failure. Stay tuned for the mission’s progress and its expected landing in February 2024.
