The Moon has been one of the primary driving forces of mankind as it is the closest object to Earth. Naturally, it creates a lot of interest and many missions have been conducted before to study the Moon. Unfortunately, the cost of such missions has been prohibitive for more global engagement in lunar research. However, now with the advancing technology, it has become very evident to use nanosatellite technology to send a mission to the moon as launching and deploying a nanosatellite is far easier and less costly as compared to a full size satellite or a full size stellar probe. Thus, this paper discusses a case study of a Lunar Mission which utilizes a 6U Nanosatellite for a Lunar Sampling Mission
