This afternoon Astrobotic received independent confirmation of Peregrine’s safe, controlled re-entry yesterday in the South Pacific.
Peregrine Mission One has concluded. We look to the future and our next mission to the Moon, Griffin Mission One. All of the hard-earned experience from the past 10 days in space along with the preceding years of designing, building, and testing Peregrine will directly inform Griffin and our future missions.
Peregrine and its payload teams have made a meaningful contribution to our lunar future, and we thank everyone who supported this mission. Courtesy of United Launch Alliance, this video was captured from their Vulcan rocket’s payload fairing.
Peregrine has flown so Griffin may land.
Ad luna per aspera.
