Astrobotic Peregrine Lander NASA Payload Moon
Astrobotic’s Peregrine lander will deliver five NASA payloads to Sinus Viscositatis, a large flat region on the Moon that was once a giant lava flow near the Gruithuisen Domes. It’s set to launch on Monday, January 8, from Cape Canaveral, Florida, atop a United Launch Alliance Vulcan rocket.



Some of the NASA payloads aboard Peregrine One are capable of locating water molecules on the Moon, measure radiation / gases around the lander, and evaluate the lunar exosphere. The data collected will improve NASA’s understanding of how solar radiation interacts with the lunar surface, while also offering insight for NASA’s Lunar-VISE (Lunar Vulkan Imaging and Spectroscopy Explorer) instrument suite, set to land on the Gruithuisen Domes in 2026.

We are so excited to see this vision become a reality. CLPS is an innovative way of leveraging American companies to send important science and technology payloads to the Moon. The Moon is a rich destination for scientific discovery. Studying and sampling the lunar environment will help NASA unravel some of the greatest mysteries of our solar system for the benefit of all,” said Nicola Fox, Science Mission Directorate at NASA.
