NASA’s Lunar Flashlight probe in trouble on its way to the moon


NASA’s newest tiny lunar probe is battling a thruster glitch on its way to the moon.

The spacecraft, called Lunar Flashlight, launched last month on a mission to seek out water ice on the moon. The probe was also expected to test a new “green” propellant during its four-month voyage to the moon, but its thrusters have a problem, NASA said on Thursday (Jan. 12).
