NASA Picks SpaceX for Artemis Human Lunar Lander Development


NASA is getting ready to send astronauts to explore more of the Moon as part of the Artemis program, and the agency has selected SpaceX to continue development of the first commercial human lander that will safely carry the next two American astronauts to the lunar surface.

The agency’s powerful Space Launch System rocket will launch four astronauts aboard the Orion spacecraft for their multi-day journey to lunar orbit. There, two crew members will transfer to the SpaceX human landing system (HLS) for the final leg of their journey to the surface of the Moon. After approximately a week exploring the surface, they will board the lander for their short trip back to orbit where they will return to Orion and their colleagues before heading back to Earth.

  1. Congratulations to SpaceX and NASA! I am so relieved, i feared that lobbies would win but no! SpaceX looks like the perfect solution, and is able to evolve to a complete earth to moon then earth to mars solution 🙂

  2. I really couldn’t see why they wouldn’t pick SpaceX. They have already sent Multiple crew to the ISS, sent resupplies to the ISS. Plus with Starships rapid progress and development surely it was the only logical option?! The other companies haven’t even done anything for NASA.
