Watch live: NASA, Intuitive Machines share updates on Odysseus moon lander

NASA and Intuitive Machines will hold a live news conference Wednesday afternoon to discuss the Odysseus spacecraft, which tipped over as it attempted to land on the moon.

NASA is providing live coverage for the moon mission update, scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. EST. You can watch the update live at the video at the top of the page, or on NASA+, NASA Television or the agency's website.

Last week, the Odysseus spacecraft touched down on the surface of the moon's South Pole region, although it tipped and came down on its side. It appeared to be lying on an upward angle on the surface, indicating the top of the craft is on a rock, or a slope.

The spacecraft is still functioning and generating solar power, Intuitive Machines said in an update on X Wednesday morning, as mission officials hope to use Odysseus' waning moments to help future exploration.

Although there are no humans on board for this mission, Odysseus' landing also marks the first American return to the moon in five decades.

The lander, designed and operated by Houston-based Intuitive Machines, is the first commercial spacecraft to ever land on the moon. The lunar landing is also the first by an American-built spacecraft since NASA's final Apollo mission in 1972.
