The Japanese SLIM lander entered lunar orbit

The SLIM (Smart Lander for Investing Moon) probe was launched in September. With it, the rocket carried the X-ray Observatory XRISM (X-ray Imaging and Spectroscopy Mission) into space, which was created in cooperation between the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), NASA and the European Space Agency. The telescope will explore the universe using high-energy X-ray light, and the SLIM probe will attempt to land on the Moon. If the SLIM maneuver succeeds, Japan will become the fifth country, after the United States, Russia, China and India, to succeed in landing a probe on the surface of the moon.

Moderate build

The SLIM lander entered Silver Globe orbit on Monday, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency said. “The change in course was implemented as originally planned,” the agency said in a statement. This plan also assumes that the landing attempt will take place on January 20.
