A Japanese company that hopes to land people on the moon one day has unveiled the final design of its first robotic lunar lander, which will launch in2022  on a SpaceX rocket. 

Tokyo-based ispace revealed the Hakuto-Reboot (Hakuto-R) lander design July 30, stating that the mission is now slated to touch down on the moon in 2022. That’s a year later than a previous target, which aimed for a moon landing in 2021. Unspecified “technical issues” held up construction in recent months, ispace said, although the lander did pass a critical design review that allows for the hardware to be finalized for construction.
