Original Entry: Intuitive Machines’ IM-1 lander, named Odysseus, is scheduled to land on the Moon near the South Pole on February 22, 2024.  The company has declined so far to reveal the time, though IM Vice President for Space Systems Trent Martin said at a February 13 pre-launch briefing that it would be “late in the day.”

IM-1 was successfully launched on February 15 at 1:05 am ET.
