Relief news for NASA! Connectivity restored with Capstone spacecraft, is testing a new route to go to the moon

The US space agency NASA is once again preparing a mission to land humans on the Moon. Prior to this mission, it has launched a satellite CubeSat the size of a microwave oven. Its full name is Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment (CAPSTONE). Capstone was launched in late June from the Mahia Peninsula in New Zealand. The purpose of this satellite is to test a new route for future missions to the moon, but the journey of the Capstone satellite remains extremely unusual. Three days ago it was reported that this satellite has successfully liberated from its orbit around the Earth and is heading towards the Moon. That is, the satellite started passing through a new route. After this it was found that the CubeSat mission has lost its communication with Earth.
