Intuitive Machines Successfully Completes Launch Vibration Tests in Preparation for Lunar Mission


HOUSTON, TX – March 16, 2023


Intuitive Machines, Inc. (Nasdaq: LUNR, LUNRW) (“Intuitive Machines” or the

“Company”), a leading space exploration, infrastructure, and services company, today

announced that its lunar lander, Nova-C has completed all structural testing, paving

the way for the Company’s first mission to the Moon later this year.


The series of modal tests, conducted by Intuitive Machines engineers, subjected the

Company’s Nova-C lunar lander to low-level vibration to excite the completed lander.

Results from these tests correlate the detailed finite element model of Nova-C with

flight structure, ultimately allowing engineers to calculate flight environments of the

lander, electronics, and customer payloads that will be exposed to during the launch.

The modal tests, in conjunction with previous vibration and static load tests, provide

the complete structural certification of the flight lander.
