NASA science is set to land on the Moon aboard Odysseus, Intuitive Machines’ uncrewed autonomous lander. Touchdown is targeted for 5:30 p.m. EST (2230 UTC) Thursday, Feb. 22, 2024. The NASA payloads aboard the lander aim to help us learn more about terrain and communications near the lunar South Pole.


IM-1 is a trailblazing mission aimed at creating a commercial lunar economy, delivering commercial payloads and NASA science and technology payloads that will pave the way for a sustainable human presence on and around the Moon. The mission aims to be the first U.S. vehicle to softly land on the lunar surface since Apollo 17 in 1972. Intuitive Machines selected SpaceX to launch the Company’s Nova-C class lunar lander, named Odysseus, on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from NASA Kennedy Space Center’s Pad 39A. After launch, Odysseus is planned to separate from the Falcon 9 rocket on a direct trajectory to the Moon. Intuitive Machines flight controllers working from Nova Control in Houston, Texas, expect Odysseus to land on the Moon approximately nine days after liftoff. After touchdown, Intuitive Machines and its customers expect to operate payloads on the lunar surface for roughly seven days before the lunar night sets on the south pole of the Moon, rendering Odysseus inoperable.

Flight controllers analyzed the post-Lunar Orbit Insertion engine burn data and updated the anticipated flight maneuver timing, including an expected 1630 CST landing opportunity. The landing opportunity will be Odysseus’ hardest challenge yet. The lander continues to be in excellent health, orbiting approximately 92 km above the lunar surface.

Odysseus, the lander for the IM-1 mission, launched on 15 February 2024 at 1:05 AM EST. The Odysseus lander achieved lunar orbit on 21 February, and is currently scheduled to land on the Moon on 22 February at 22:30 UTC (5:30 PM EST).[9] If successful, its soft Moon landing will be the first for an American made spacecraft since Apollo 17, more than 50 years ago. It would also be the first soft lunar landing by a private company. Odysseus is expected to land in the middle of a lunar day, and to remain functional for approximately seven Earth days after landing

Intuitive Machines expects IM-1 to land on the Moon at 22:30 UTC (16:30 CST) on 22 February.[44] The landing targets the Malapert-A crater, about 300 km (190 mi) from the lunar south pole. The soft landing of the Odysseus lander on the Moon would be the first American spacecraft to land on the Moon since the Apollo 17 mission in 1972.[46]

A favored possible landing site in 2020 was between the Mare Serenitatis plain and the Mare Crisium plain.[47][48] Later on it was decided that the south pole of the Moon was one of the most likely locations to have a suitable source of water for a future manned lunar base.[49]

The Malapert-A crater area just 300 km from the lunar South Pole was chosen due to the fact that it appeared to be a relatively flat and safe place on which to land near to the lunar South Pole, amongst other considerations
