NASA’s CAPSTONE launch to the moon has been postponed again due to final reviews

NASA has canceled plans to launch a small CubeSat to the moon on Monday (June 27) to give it more time to check its Rocket Lab booster for the flight.

The US space agency announced today that it is no longer targeting a Monday launch for the new CAPSTONE CubeSat to the Moon using a Rocket Lab-built Electron Booster. The mission, led by the company Advanced Space, was scheduled to lift off at 6am EDT (1000 GMT) Monday from a platform on New Zealand’s Mahia Peninsula.
