Toppled Lunar Landers and More of February’s Best Space Images

Intuitive Machines’ Odysseus landing during its descent towards the lunar surface. Image: Intuitive MachinesIt was a topsy-turvy month in spaceflight, with yet another lunar lander falling over and an upsetting new view showing NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter missing a rotor blade, among other memorable moments. February is the shortest month of the year, but it often packs a punch and feels a helluva lot longer than it should.

Odysseus snaps amazing lunar landing images; Intuitive shares insights in tie-up with NASA

NASA and Intuitive Machines recently showcased the first images by its lunar lander, Odysseus, making a soft landing on the Moon's south pole as part of the Intuitive Machines 1 mission (IM-1). The spacecraft's orientation and a glimpse of the Moon's South Pole region were captured in these images, marking for a significant achievement in the United States' return to lunar exploration over half a century since Apollo 17.Referred to affectionately as a "scrappy little guy" by NASA due to a tilted leg, Odysseus executed a…

Google Gemini AI images disaster: What really happened with the image generator?

Google has been in hot waters recently over the inaccuracies of Gemini, its AI chatbot, in generating AI images.
