Intuitive Machines Lunar Landing Party


Morehead State is celebrating the successful landing of a lunar mission, being supported by students in the space systems engineering program.  

Intuitive Machines’ IM-1 mission sent its Nova-C lunar lander named Odysseus to the Moon on Feb. 15 as part of NASA’s Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) initiative. CLPS is a key part of NASA’s lunar exploration efforts.

IM-1 is expected to land on the moon on Thursday afternoon, Feb. 22.

MSU invites students, faculty, staff, and the community to join us to watch the landing at the Space Science Center’s Star Theater. The Star Theater will open at 4 p.m. The anticipated landing time is 6:24 p.m. It will also be broadcast on NASA TV.

Intuitive Machines is a diversified space exploration company focused on pioneering the commercial landscape of outer space – with a North Star of landing the United States on the Moon. Intuitive Machines believes that their first lunar missions are the spark that will ignite the commercial development of the Moon as a destination of scientific achievement and will serve as a commercial blueprint to explore our solar system.
