NASA signs deal with SpaceX and Blue Origin to deliver more cargo to the moon

NASA has announced it will cooperate with commercial space companies that have high-paying rockets. NASA plans to send more loaded cargo to the moon and will partner with SpaceX, Blue Origin and Sierra Nevada Corporation, as well as Ceres Robotics and Tyvak Nina Satellite Systems, where he has previously worked on other projects.

Companies that will participate in NASA’s Commercial Lunar Payload Services program will be added to nine companies previously included in the program. NASA’s goal is to work with a company with disparate capabilities to transport scientific tools to deliver cargo to the moon. So in 2024, people can be sent back to the abyss.

Newcomers to the Commercial Lunar Payload Services programme have pledged to carry heavier loads than the 9 companies that have so far served under the programme. Let’s add that the companies involved in the program have the ability to carry up to 10 kg of cargo so far. However, some of the new additions to the programme suggested they could carry several tonnes of burden to the moon.

With Vice President Mike Pence pushing NASA, the agency is preparing to send humans back to the moon within the next four years and plans to conduct further research on the moon’s environmental factors. Similarly, the new mission will focus on developing new technologies for later tasks. NASA plans to send a new vehicle to the moon called the VIPER, allowing it to explore the moon’s south pole. The VIPER is expected to find potential water ice accumulated at the south pole. This will allow resources to be provided to the people on duty.

Blue Origin recommended blue moon for use on the moon, while SpaceX said it would launch the Starship spacecraft, which is in the process of testing. Ceres Robotics is aiming to land on the earth in 2023, while SNC has announced that it will be ready to land on the earth in 2022. In the meantime, SpaceX stands out with the Starship ship with the highest payload capacity. Starship is expected to land on the moon in 2022.
