ORIGINAL CAPTION: The plan is for the lander to set down in 2024 on the Moon's South Pole.

Their website says that they have not worked on a lander design, so the artwork is entirely notional.

That said, it's a lousy lander design. Too top heavy. Needs a wider footprint. They should have worked with their artist.

Reading about the way of raising money for that mission, I hope, that the scientific
points won't take a back seat !

Was my first thought, too, and if no design work still yet was done, it actually may just
be a guess. But I'm not sure, that it is possible to determine the CG by such a picture,
as long, as it isn't known, how components of different weight are distributed. If heavy
items are all placed low and lighter ones more upwards, it may work, no matter, what
it looks like, I think.
