Rocket Lab will launch a cubesat to the Moon

Launch startup Rocket Lab has been awarded a contract to launch a cubesat into the Moon’s orbit in early 2021 on behalf of NASA for the agency’s CAPSTONE experiment. An Electron rocket will launch from NASA’s Wallops facility in Virginia, with the Photon platform sending CAPSTONE into a trans-lunar injection.
