Show Page: Alternative Listening: "The CAPSTONE team continues work on recovery efforts [of its unmanned spacecraft currently heading to the Moon, arriving November 13] ...." "South Korea's first robotic lunar orbiter, named 'Danuri,' is looping back to the Moon [for its planned arrival December 16] ... after successfully conducting a critical trajectory correction maneuver Sept. 2 ...." CAPSTONE ("Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment") is in trouble: at the end of its third pre-planned mid-course correction burn last week (Sept 8), "something" went radically wrong-- And the microwave-sized spacecraft began tumbling wildly enroute to lunar orbit.

Any ONE of these on-going lunar missions has the potential to TOTALLY REVOLUTIONIZE OUR LIFE ON EARTH -- by simply showing us via HD television "what's been waiting on the Moon for over fifty years" ... a vast array of "Ancient ET Lunar Structures!"
