NASA’s CAPSTONE cubesat mission keeps raising orbit toward the moon

NASA’s little CAPSTONE cubesat is making good progress on its long journey to the moon.

The 55-pound (25 kilograms) CAPSTONE launched to Earth orbit aboard a Rocket Lab Electron booster on Monday (June 28). CAPSTONE remains in orbit, attached to Rocket Lab’s Photon spacecraft bus, but it’s getting farther and farther from its home planet.
