The simulated graphic shows what the instrument will look like. The instrument will determine the structure and composition of the moon’s mantle through studying electric and magnetic fields. Image Credit: NASA/Southwest Research Institute
Lunar Environment Heliophysics X-ray Imager (LEXI) will give insight to the structure of the moon by studying electric and magnetic fields. The picture of the flight-spare magnetometer will provide new information on how the moon has cooled off, elements present on the moon, and so much more.

The ETU mechanism built at Honeybee Robotics. In this photo, there is a series of stages during drilling testing in vacuum. When integrated into the lander, it will drill down into the moon’s interior to measure the amount of heat at a 2-3 meter depth. Image Credit: NASA/GSFC/Texas Tech
This stereo camera will be used to capture still image and video data of the lander’s engine plume during its decent. Image credit: NASA/LaRC
