Lunar probe "Odysseus" broke at least one leg when it touched down on the moon last week. New images explain why the robot on the first private lunar mission is in an inclined position.

The device now goes into a deep sleep lasting several weeks; its future is uncertain. It is hoped that it may be possible to contact the lander again when the sun reaches its location again in around two weeks. The images confirmed that the probe landed in a crater called "Malapart A" within a radius of 1.5 kilometers from the originally targeted landing site.
