Yet another moon failure

Post by ZoWie »

It's not just NASA any more. We just found out why the solar panels on the Japanese lunar lander don't seem to be making much electricity.

Their spacecraft landed upside down. Rather than coming down on its little wheels, it landed belly up. Like one of those inverted trucks on Highway Through Hell.

Oops.
