JAXA announced that the unmanned spacecraft "SLIM successfully landed on the lunar surface in the early morning of the 20th, (JST).


It is the first time for Japan to successfully land on the moon and the fifth country in the world.


However, the solar cells on the spacecraft are not generating power, and the spacecraft appears to be operating on battery power.



JAXA will check the data to see if the intended landing with high accuracy was achieved. 


Glad to see that Japanese science and technology has also reached the level of reaching the moon's surface! 

We support Japanese manufacturing business.
