NASA’s tiny CAPSTONE probe aces 1st engine burn en route to the moon

NASA’s little CAPSTONE moon probe has bounced back from its recent hiccup.

The 55-pound (25 kilograms) CAPSTONE successfully performed its first engine burn today (July 7), an 11-minute maneuver that started at 8:30 a.m. EDT (1230 GMT) and changed its velocity by 45 mph (72 kph) as planned, NASA officials said in an update (opens in new tab).
