Japanese startup iSpace Inc. has admitted failure in its attempt to conduct the first private moon landing.

  • The Chandrayaan mission of the Japanese private company ISpace Inc. has suffered a setback.
  • In this way, Japan’s dream of landing its own lander on the lunar surface has remained incomplete.
  • The name of this lander is Hakuto-R Mission 1. Japanese startup iSpace Inc said its attempt to land on the lunar surface failed after it lost contact with its Hakuto-R mission lander.
  • It is believed that the lander rover fell victim to the accident while trying to land fast.
  • This satellite of the Japanese company was launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida in December 2022 by a SpaceX rocket. So far only America, Soviet Union and China have successfully landed on the moon. Indian and Israeli landing attempts have failed.
