After 5 decades, America’s first space mission to land on the moon ended up falling into the ocean.

Last week, for the first time in more than 50 years, the United States launched a space mission to land on the moon. This mission was sent by a private company called United Launch Alliance instead of NASA.

The mission, named Peregrine One, suffered some technical problems and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean.

Peregrine One’s signal loss was confirmed by the tracking station in Canberra, the capital of Australia.

MISSION OBJECTIVE

Astrobiotic (an American company developing space robotics technology for lunar and planetary missions) aimed to deliver five NASA instruments to the lunar surface to study the local environment before the astronauts return later this decade.

If the Peregrine craft had succeeded in landing, it would have become the first American mission to do so in half a century and the first private project to accomplish the feat.

Before this, only the United States, Soviet Union, China and India have landed on the moon.
