Masten announced in an August 2020 press release that it selected SpaceX to launch a mission to deliver ”nine NASA-sponsored science and technology demonstration experiments and several commercial payloads to the lunar south pole.” According to a July 22 article in Parabolic Arc, Masten has furloughed its staff, “putting at risk both the company and a $75.9 million NASA-funded mission to deliver the MoonRanger rover and eight scientific payloads to the lunar surface aboard Masten’s XL-1 lander late next year.”
