NASA resumes Lunar program

В NASA запланировали новую миссию на Луну

He hit back at claims the U.S. has promised to go back to the moon before. Under this architecture, NASA would become one "among many" customers. NASA will later compete individual task orders among the companies to fly specific payloads to the moon.

The nine companies are Astrobotic Technology, Deep Space Systems, Draper, Firefly Aerospace, Intuitive Machines, Lockheed Martin, Masten Space Systems, Moon Express, and Orbit Beyond. NASA will continue looking at private sector for innovations and delivery solutions.

"The directive I am signing today will refocus America's space program on human exploration and discovery". He told a meeting of reporters: "I will tell you that was not helpful, and that did not inspire confidence, and the leaders of these organisations need to take that as an example of what to do when you lead an organisation that's going to launch American astronauts".

US-based space agency NASA on Thursday announced nine commercial American companies in a partnership to develop lunar robotic landers in the coming decade.

NASA has not given any specifics for the bidding process, other than to say it will "look at a number of factors when comparing the bids, such as technical feasibility, price and schedule". No money was awarded Thursday.

Researchers Swallow Lego To Calm Parents That It Will Eventually Be Eliminated
And if a Lego head or similar object does go mysteriously AWOL, the pediatricians' advice to parents is not to go looking for it. By now you might be thinking that some people have way too much fun at work, and you would be correct.


Nasa has not said anything about the condition of the other instruments on board, which include a French-made seismometer to study Marsquakes and a German self-hammering mole to measure heat's escape from the planet.

In a release, Draper said it planned to build an uncrewed lander dubbed Artemis-7 that would be able to "complete sample collection and return, demonstrate the use of in-space resources and reduce risk for the production of human landers". SMD serves as the NASA interface between the agency's mission directorates, the scientific community, and other external stakeholders in developing a strategy to enable an integrated approach for robotic and human exploration within NASA's Moon to Mars Exploration Campaign.

The McCandless Lunar Lander is named after the late astronaut and former Lockheed Martin employee Bruce McCandless.

'Right now we're building a space station, we call it 'Gateway, ' that's going to be in orbit around the moon - think of it as a reusable command module where we can have human presence in orbit around the moon, ' Bridenstine said.

NASA already is utilizing the private sector on a commercial basis.

Bridenstine added that he wanted to review the workplace culture in SpaceX and Boeing even before Musk smoked weed publicly.

NASA wants lots of companies involved to encourage competition and get to the moon fast, so astronauts can benefit once an orbiting outpost is up and running near the moon.

SEC Fines Floyd Mayweather, DJ Khaled for ICO Promotions

NASA plans to create a sustainable moon mission that will lead to a human mission to Mars, and these Commercial Lunar Payload Services contracts are a big part of it.
