Martin unveils lunar lander concept vehicle

В США разрабатывают посадочный модуль для Луны

According to a newly published Lockheed white paper, the lunar lander would carry a crew of four astronauts and an additional 2,000 pounds of payload cargo to the surface of the Moon where it could stay for up to two weeks before returning to the Gateway without refueling on the surface.

NASA and Lockheed would work together on the project, with the lander proposed to launch from the planned space station Deep Space Gateway.

"NASA asked industry for innovative and new approaches to advance America's goal of returning humans to the Moon, and establishing a sustainable, enduring presence there", said Lisa Callahan, vice president and general manager of Commercial Civil Space at Lockheed Martin Space.

"This lander could be used to establish a surface base, deliver scientific or commercial cargo, and conduct extraordinary exploration of the Moon".

Space Agency NASA has unveiled a detailed national plan for space exploration.

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

To fulfill its vision, the space agency wants to rely on private space enterprises to meet its hardware needs, and Lockheed Martin is taking this role very seriously.

The Deep Space Gateway is a collaboration between the USA and Russian Federation to create a lunar space station that will act as a "gateway to deep space".

Lockheed said that the lander design uses technology developed for its Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, a vehicle it says is "the only spacecraft designed for long-duration, human-rated deep space exploration".

Lockheed Martin says the new lander could help pave the way for future human missions to Mars.

Tim Cichan, space exploration architect, said: "The Gateway is key to full, frequent and fast reusability of this lander".

An artist's conception shows Blue Origin's Blue Moon lander on the lunar surface. Important quantities of water can be found on the moon's polar region, which missions in the future can use to create fuel and oxygen for a manned outpost.

NASA has not just launched spacecrafts to unlock mysteries of the universe, dispatched probes to make close-up observations of every planet in the solar system, but has also, in August, sent a probe named Parker Solar Probe to the Sun.
