The module would land on the Moon around April 2000, on the visible side of the natural satellite, in the Atlas crater, according to a company statement.
A Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled to take off at 3am41 (5h39 in Brasilia) from the base of Cape Canaveral, in the state of Florida, in the southeast of the United States, with an alternative date in case of unforeseen circumstances for Thursday.
If Hakuto manages to land safely in the lunar crater of Atlas, he will release little Rashid.
