Is Astrobotic's £85 Million Peregrine Lunar Lander Mission in Jeopardy?

Astrobotic's Peregrine Lunar Lander has encountered a propulsion anomaly, which has led to the spacecraft being unable to achieve a stable sun-pointing orientation, potentially threatening its ability to soft-land on the moon.

The anomaly has also caused the spacecraft's battery to reach operationally low levels. Engineers are working to stabilize the situation, and the company is providing ongoing updates as the situation unfolds.

The likely cause of the issue is a propulsion anomaly, and the team is actively troubleshooting the problem in real-time

The situation is being closely monitored, and further updates are expected as more data becomes available
