The Lunar Gateway is an in-development mini-space station in lunar orbit intended to serve as a solar-powered communication hub, science laboratory, short-term habitation module, and holding area for rovers and other robots.

It is expected to play a major role in NASA's Artemis program, after While the project is led by NASA, the Gateway is meant to be developed, serviced, and utilized in Carrier rocket: Commercial launch vehicles, Proton-M. The Artemis program is an ongoing crewed spaceflight program carried out predominantly by NASA, U.S.

The Artemis―a Greek mythological Goddess and the twin sister of Apollo, now personifying NASA’s path to the moon― consists of a Space Launch System (SLS), an Orion Spacecraft and the Gateway. Space Launch System (SLS) is a modern rocket with the largest and most powerful boosters ever built for flight.

It is the only rocket manufactured with the ability to launch heavy cargo shipments. SpaceX got $ billion under NASAs commercial crew program, while Boeing received more than $4 billion.

SinceNACA (NASA's predecessor) and, sinceNASA have conducted the X-Plane Program. The program was originally intended to create a family of experimental aircraft not intended for production beyond the limited number of each design built solely for flight research. The first X-Plane, the Bell X-1, was the first rocket-powered airplane to break the sound barrier on Octo 1.

Introduction. Historically, NASA's mission-oriented programs for innovation have been driven by security concerns and by the need for maintaining technical leadership over other nations.

1 The situation is now shifting. NASA is attempting to create new markets that fuel a sustainable Earth-LEO economy, or, as Sam Scimemi, director of the ISS, put it, to “sustain economic activity in LEO Cited by: 9. Today, however, with the help of government funding, a number of private space companies are developing vehicles designed first to carry cargo to the ISS, and, later, crews.

The key word here is ‘later’: according to William Gerstenmaier, Nasa associate administrator for human exploration and operations, /16 is the earliest the US can.
