Hello, Earth, how beautiful you are. South Korea’s South Korean Moon Orbiter Pathfinder spacecraft, known as Danuri, has sent a visual love letter to a human on the moon. The spacecraft recently entered lunar orbit and turned its main camera solution back home.
The Korea Aerospace Research Institute shared views on Twitter this week. The first two come from late December and show the Earth’s moon crater with the Earth peeking over the horizon.
The images are similarNASA’s Apollo and Diana missions were seen. About-the-moon I sent Diana the most charming as seen from the Orion capsule last year.
KARI images of the second part of the common land they broke into the new year.
Danuri is South Korea’s first lunar mission. In August 2022, a SpaceX rocket was launched and it is an hour to orbit the moon. NASA has contributed one instrument to the mission, a camera called ShadowCam that will capture images of the moon’s polar shadow regions. The mission could help NASA select areas for future lunar access.
The name Danuri was made public through competition and is a result of the Korean words to modify and enjoy the moon. After seeing these pictures, the name couldn’t be more appropriate.
