According to Lockheed, it will be capable of carrying 2,000 pounds of cargo and supporting a crew of four on the Moon's surface for up to two weeks at a time. The space agency has also asked aerospace experts to create plans for a space station, the "Lunar Gateway", that will orbit the moon and serve as a hub for moon missions.

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

Astronauts would be able to travel to and from the surface of the moon multiple times and refuel the spacecraft in the moon's orbit.

"The Gateway is key to full, frequent and fast reusability of this lander", said in a statement Tim Cichan, the space exploration architect at Lockheed Martin Space who presented the lander concept at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC).

NASA will enable SpaceIL to receive communications services with the spacecraft and conduct deep space exploration through NASA's huge antenna network, which will help communicate with earth.

Chris Evans says goodbye to Captain America as 'Avengers 4' wraps
We'll all get to see how the saga wraps up when Avengers 4 premieres in theaters on May 3, 2019. Evans said it was an "honour" to play the role for nearly a decade.

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".

The companies say they're partnering on a future Blue Moon mission to the lunar surface and will collaborate on a payload for Blue Origin's reusable, orbital-class New Glenn rocket - but it sounds as if the details still have to be worked out.

Putting human boots back on the moon is part of NASA's ambitious long-term goals for the next decade, which also includes landing the first humans on Mars and an asteroid. In addition, NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter will attempt to take scientific measurements of the SpaceIL lander as it lands on the Moon. First of all, Gateway needs to be deployed, and for this happen NASA needs to launch the Space Launch System (SLS), the most powerful rocket humans have ever built.

NASA wanted innovative ideas for a return trip to the Moon and this is Lockheed's best attempt so far.

Deep Space Gateway is a joint project between the USA and Russian Federation and was announced previous year with ambitions for missions to Mars.
