Japan’s moon lander survives a second weekslong lunar night, beating predictions

  • Japan's first moon lander, SLIM, survived a lunar night after its solar panels faced away from the sun, forcing it into hibernation.
  • SLIM managed to wake up after a two-week lunar night, made observations, and communicated with Earth despite the misaligned solar panels.
  • SLIM achieved a successful pinpoint touchdown on the moon, coming within 55m of its target, marking Japan as the fifth country to place a probe on the moon.
