NASA is launching a spacecraft on an Air Force Minatour rocket from Wallops Flight Facility on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Th purpose of the mission is to explore the moons atmosphere and dust.
“Sometimes, people are a little taken aback when we start talking about the lunar atmosphere because, right, we were told in school that the moon doesn’t have an atmosphere,” said Sarah Noble, NASA program scientist.
“It does. It’s just really, really thin,” she added.
The launch will be the first rocket take-off bound for the moon at the facility, with all but one prior moon mission emanating from Cape Canaveral.
