As far as I am concerned. This is mostly a failed first Lunar landing attempt by Intuitive Machines. Will not matter in the long run, if their next (and fiscally doable final) attempt is more successful.
Unlike some posters here. Think the lack of photos and videos during the landing attempt is really bad PR. The days of media people reading out a press release about what happen is long gone. General public interest in a mission requires high quality video presentations of the phases of the mission and the actual event itself to be sustainable, IMO.
Considering how Astrobotic looks right now, IM is considerably better off. At least IM's lander actually made it.
Doesn't matter. The general public will likely not return to watch follow up coverage after the really mediocre landing attempt coverage.
