Gateway to the Moon

Post by brian livesey »

A company with sites in Bristol, Belfast and Oxfordshire, Thales Alenia Space, has done a deal with Nasa through the British Space Agency to construct a chemical refuelling station. The station will assist in transferring fuel to the Lunar Gateway space station that will orbit the moon and operate as a communication hub and science laboratory.
NASA plans to land both a male and female astronaut on the moon by 2024. The British built refuelling station is due to be launched in 2027.

Lunar Getaway building as important as rocket manufacturing for Artemis mission. The Moon is three days long from the Earth but the spacecraft has to be safe and be able to successfully send humans to the Moon and back.
