This represents a remarkable renaissance in lunar exploration. Consider that, from 1973 to 2022, NASA and the United States sent a total of 15 spacecraft to the Moon over a period of five decades. Now, thanks to a mix of commercial, academic, and government payloads, US rockets will launch 15 spacecraft to the Moon in about five months.

There is getting to be a traffic jam up there!

I have seen orbits between Earth-Moon and Earth-Mars that are stable and use no fuel, and keep spacecraft running all the time between those points. Earth-Moon is about a week, Earth-Mars about 3 years. Then when they get near, another craft rendezvous and offloads passengers, and more board.

One day it will be like taking a long cruise.

But without excursions along the way. :wink:

After a long struggle with Martian dust, NASA’s InSight probe has gone quiet

$1:
NASA's InSight lander has probably phoned home for the last time from the planet Mars.

The space agency said the spacecraft did not respond to communications from Earth on Sunday, December 18. The lack of communications came as the lander's power-generating capacity has been declining in recent months due to the accumulation of Martian dust on its solar panels. NASA said that it is "assumed" that InSight has reached the end of its operations but that it will continue to try to contact the lander in the coming days.

Also on Monday, the InSight Twitter account shared a photo with a message saying this was probably the last photo it was sending from Mars.
