In May, NASA announced the VIPER mission to the moon under the Artemis program to look for water, its deposits, or at least signs of it on the dark side of the moon. NASA has recently revealed that the landing site for the VIPER rover would be near the western edge of the Nobile Crater at the moon's south pole. VIPER stands for Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover. The mission is slated for late 2023.
