NASA wants to land humans on the moon in just five years - and the agency is ready to announce the first company that will help the Artemis program build a lunar outpost for those astronauts.
In addition to these missions, which will be all NASA's efforts, there will be five launches carrying the building blocks of the lunar mini-station "Gateway" which will serve as a staging point for the Moon landing. NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine has said that no money would be taken from other NASA programs to fund Artemis. Following the completion of the power and propulsion element, habitation, logistics and airlock capabilities will be added.
"This system requires much less propellant than traditional chemical systems, which will allow the Gateway to move more mass around the Moon, like a human landing system and large modules for living and working in orbit".
