MISSION

  • mission1

    Mounted on Astrobotic’s “Peregrine” lander, HAKUTO’s rover will be launched from the Earth by SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, and sent to lunar orbit. The Peregrine lander will achieve soft landing on the moon. The rover rover is then deployed onto the Moon’s surface.

  • mission1

    Travel more than 500 meters on the Moon’s surface while avoiding craters and rocks in an extreme environment with a surface temperature of more than 100℃ at noon and below -150℃ at night.

  • mission1

    Capture high-definition, 360-degree images of the lunar surface, and transmit these “Mooncasts” back to the Earth.
