NASA’s lunar expedition is in jeopardy Lunar Flashlight has problems with engines

(ORDO NEWS) — NASA engineers have reported that three of the four engines on the Lunar Flashlight spacecraft are not operating at full power.

The cause of the breakdown may be clogging of the pipelines supplying fuel to the engines.

Let me remind you that the Lunar Flashlight apparatus, which is often called a “moon flashlight” because of the principle of its operation, is designed to explore the south pole of the Earth‘s natural satellite.

Lunar Flashlight would fly 15 kilometers above the Moon‘s surface and use a powerful laser to search for water ice in the shadows of craters where sunlight never reaches the bottom.

Now engineers are trying to find a solution to the problem so that Lunar Flashlight can continue its work.
