Near-Earth Asteroid Scout (NEA Scout), a shoebox-size asteroid explorer, was one among the 10 payloads on the Artemis 1 mission. According to NASA, the Scout successfully separated and deployed from the SLS (Space Launch System) rocket but has not established contact with the spacecraft as yet. The space agency, along with several ground-based observatories, is actively working to contact the silent asteroid explorer.
