NASA-funded CAPSTONE moon mission seeks to go where no cubesat has gone before

CAPSTONE, short for “Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment,” will occupy an orbit around the moon that has never been used before, to test out the Gateway space station’s path to support future Artemis astronauts on the lunar surface.
