On April 12, Japanese space startup Ispace said its lunar lander could land on this planet on April 26, marking the world’s first private company to have the lander land on the Moon.
Omotenashi is designed to land on the surface of the Moon at a speed of 180 km/h.

If successful, the lander Ispace Inc. self-developed will also be the first lander from a Japanese private company or government agency to land on the Moon. In 2022, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) failed to land the Omotenashi spacecraft on the Moon.
pig Hakuto-R Expedition Programthe Ispace company launched a lander to test landing technology and aim to control the spacecraft to land smoothly on the lunar surface from its command center in Tokyo.
Ispace CEO and Founder Takeshi Hakamada pointed out: “I look forward to this historic day, which marks the beginning of a new era of commercial missions to the Moon.”
The lander took off from Florida (USA) with a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in December 2022.
To carry less fuel, the lander took an energy-efficient flight route. In January, there was a time when the train was about 1,376,000 km from Earth. The spacecraft entered lunar orbit in March.
The landing craft is approximately 2.3m high and 2.6m wide and carries a small robot developed by JAXA and toy company Tomy Co.
If the mission goes as planned, the lander will land on around 1:40 a.m. on April 26 Japan time (11:40 p.m. on April 25 Vietnam time).
