SLIM, or Smart Lander for Lunar Exploration, is operated by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The vehicle landed on the moon in a precise landing on January 19, making Japan the fifth country to make a soft landing on the moon after India, China, the United States, and Russia (then the Soviet Union).
