Lunar craters can be plainly seen with the aid of a small telescope.
The CubeSat is about the size of a microwave oven. And its mission is to map out an unusual orbit around the moon known as a near-rectilinear halo orbit (NRHO), which may one day be used for a lunar space station. This facility, which NASA refers to as the “Gateway,” has the potential to make a vast number of opportunities for the exploration of space for humanity. Its task is to be a resupply depot and a way station for longer crewed jobs to Mars and beyond. Also, it could be used to land rovers or humans on the moon. But first, the office wants to garner more data on NRHO, and that’s where CAPSTONE shows up; it’s one of the programs that will help them do that.
