Martin unveils lunar lander concept vehicle”

Plans for the creation of a reusable lander Jeff Bezos, who on Wednesday won first place in the ranking of the richest people in the U.S. Forbes magazine (his fortune is estimated at $160 billion), told journalists at a scientific conference in California in may.

"The highlights over the last sixty years for NASA start with the monumental space programmes they developed in a relatively small amount of time, beginning with the Mercury missions, the Gemini missions, but of course the Apollo missions in successfully sending people to the moon in 1969".

In conjunction with the Lunar Gateway, the Mars Base Camp Precursor Lunar Lander would take astronauts and 1.1 tons of cargo to the Moon's surface, according to a Lockheed white paper on the topic.

Among the plan's strategic objectives, NASA calls for returning US astronauts on the surface of the moon.

Lockheed presented the lunar lander concept to the International Astronomical Congress (IAC) in Germany yesterday.

NASA will enable SpaceIL to receive communications services with the spacecraft and conduct deep space exploration through NASA's huge antenna network, which will help communicate with earth.

"I'm thrilled to extend progress in commercial cooperation we've made in low-Earth orbit to the lunar environment with this new agreement with the Israel Space Agency and SpaceIL", said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.

SpaceIL competed in the Google Lunar X-Prize, and continues to work toward landing the first Israeli spacecraft on the Moon.

In addition, NASA's lunar robotic spacecraft LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter) launched 9 years ago and orbiting the moon, will try to photograph the Israeli spacecraft as it lands on the moon.

The VP also described the mighty Space Launch System (SLS) and Orion spacecraft that will be used to carry USA astronauts on epic missions over the coming years. That craft will be sent into space aboard NASA's Space Launch System (SLS), still under development and created to be the most powerful rocket ever built.

The hope is the design can be applied to future missions to Mars, as well.
