NASA has released new images that appear to show the broken remains of Japan’s Hakuto lander, which crashed on the lunar surface in a failed mission last month.

Axar.az reports that organized by Tokyo-based lunar exploration startup space, the Hakuto-R Mission 1 lunar lander launched in December 2022 with the aim of becoming the first privately funded spacecraft to land and operate on the lunar surface.

But following several months in space, an anomaly occurred in the final moments before the spacecraft’s scheduled touchdown. With all contact lost, how and exactly where the lander impacted the moon wasn’t clear, but images captured recently by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) appear to have shed new light on the case.
