Russian Federation unveils plans to build human colony on moon

В NASA запланировали новую миссию на Луну

The space agency plans to work with nine private firms, ranging from small startups to giants like Lockheed Martin, to develop robotic landers and systems to mine the natural resources on the moon.

Astrobotic Technology is a Pittsburgh-based company. "When we go to the moon, we want to be one customer of many customers in a robust marketplace between the Earth and the moon".

NASA will re-examine the private market periodically for new and emerging lunar delivery capabilities, and may offer additional companies an opportunity to join Commercial Lunar Payload Services through a contract process called on-ramping.

Bridenstine said he needs 100 percent commitment to safety from companies with which NASA does business. The Apollo astronauts deployed them during their moon landings, but placing additional reflectors on the moon would enable precise measurements of its gravity.

"Today's announcement marks tangible progress in America's return to the moon's surface to stay". In a news release, NASA said that "w$3 orking with US companies is the next step to achieving long-term scientific study and human exploration of the Moon and Mars".

All those willing to be paid by NASA to send cargo to the Moon will have to do so regularly as part of the new Commercial Lunar Payload Services.

"Navigating humans to the moon and back almost 50 years ago was an incredibly proud moment for the engineers and scientists at Draper", CEO Kaigham Gabriel said. The craft will be created to land on the moon, acquire soil samples, and return them to Earth.

Closing the factories, eliminating workers and discontinuing certain vehicles is expected to save approximately $6 billion. According to GM's website , the Oshawa Assembly Plant employs 2,522 workers with Unifor Local 222.

"It's a big experiment", Associate Administrator for Science Thomas Zurbuchen said.

"They haven't done spacecraft so this is a bit of a new departure for them", McDowell said. "That foil collected material from the sun and provided the best measurements of the sun we had for the next 25 years. We are going. We are NASA", the agency posted to Twitter.

He said the organization was struggling with financial burdens but there was a clear five-year plan that would lead to a new age of space technology.

NASA is apparently in a hurry - the agency said that selected contractors could begin flying missions to the moon as early as next year. On Monday, we landed on Mars.

Local media are invited to a roundtable discussion at 11 a.m. EST on November 30 at NASA's Langley Research Center to discuss how the center is working with commercial partners to support NASA's exploration of the Moon and Mars.

His Space Policy Directive 1, signed last December, directs NASA to collaborate with the private sector in returning to the Moon en route to a longer-term mission to Mars. The two organizations are collaborating to fly astronauts to the International Space Station.
