NASA Picks Lunar Lander Makers Bezo’s Blue Origin, Musk’s SpaceX, and Dynetics For Future Moon Landing
During the coronavirus epidemic, NASA has been doing its best in its future mission. The space station recently selected three private space companies to work together to develop Lunar Landers which is designed to bring astronauts to the Moon.
The companies selected are Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezo’s Blue Origin, and IT company Dynetics. The three agencies will work together to create spacecraft owners who will be used by astronauts for upcoming Moon operations, NASA announced Thursday.
Great effort in space
The spacecraft will bring astronauts from the orbits of the moon to the top of the Moon and back. NASA has awarded each person a $ 579 million Blue Origin contract, $ 135 million for SpaceX, and $ 253 million for Dynetics.
Each company will spend the money on making the necessary steps in this effort. It will cover the next ten months as they try to compete in the first race.
NASA has previously stated how it wants its spacecraft to be designed, and has now entered into a partnership with a number of smaller space-based space companies with their new and innovative products.
Jim Bridenstine, director of NASA, said the three selected companies were showing high potential for success on the road to the Moon.
The three are now competing with each other to see who will be the first to bring their previous proposals into reality. Each project is unique and very different compared to the other.
The Blue Origin method taken is the use of a three-phase space. The spacecraft will release its stopping engines as it leaves the Moon area to reduce the cargo it needs to carry.
SpaceX, on the other hand, plans to use the ‘Starship’ spacecraft for a common purpose, a heavy-duty rocket rocket with a reusable engine designed to carry cargo to Earth’s orbit and other cosmic bodies such as Mars.
The third competing Dynetics comes with a lander that can be installed and launched on any rocket for easy use.
Extensive space support support
The co-director of DASA Loverro’s NASA human-aviation mission and operations unit said the leading space racing organizations have been selected to work with NASA. He also said that they needed the last piece to send the astronauts to the Moon successfully, and once they have it, the campaign will continue.
This is the first time since the 1960s and 1970s that astronauts went to the Moon.
The upcoming program is named after the Artemis Mission, named after the twin goddess Apollo, which symbolizes its relationship to the landmark event. The project aims to bring the first woman to the Moon by 2024, and the next man to the Moon.
The project came four years earlier than originally planned. NASA had originally planned to build a ‘Gateway,’ which is a space station on the moon. The astronauts first stop at the space station before moving on to the ground floor and wandering up and down.
Deputy President Mike Pence has instructed NASA to speed up its plans by four years in what is being considered a political step in line with the arrival and end of Donald Trump’s term as president.
To meet this need, NASA had to set aside a ‘Gate’ goal to harvest the arrival of the moon, which would, in time, be an ongoing lunar program planned for 2028 in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
Bridenstine spoke to politicians and received unanimous support in the effort but was told to get Congress’s approval of an estimated $ 3 billion budget for the coming year of 2021 to support the monthly arrival of the previous $ 22.6 billion budget.
