NASA will go from 'Moon to Mars' with new partnerships

NASA's list of people scheduled to participate in the Thursday announcement include Bridenstine, Thomas Zurbuchen (the agency's associate administrator for science missions), Stan Love (a NASA astronaut), Andrea Mosie (the manager of the Apollo sample laboratory), Barbara Cohen (a Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter scientist), and students involved in the. The company will provide any number of contributions towards NASA's mission to the Moon.

A company with a research and development office in Ukraine is among a group of nine firms US space agency NASA said on November 29 can take part in tenders to help send missions to the Moon, including manned missions.

Todays announcement marks tangible progress in Americas return to the Moons surfaceto stay, said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. These missions could begin as early as 2019. SpaceX and Northrop Grumman, formerly Orbital ATK, have been making space station shipments since 2012.

The goal is to get science and technology experiments to the surface of the moon as soon as possible, and the first flight could be next year. "The innovation of America's aerospace companies, wedded with our big goals in science and human exploration, are going to help us achieve fantastic things on the Moon and feed forward to Mars", Bridenstine said.

Under Space Policy Directive-1, the agency will lead an innovative and sustainable exploration of the Moon together with commercial and global partners.

"The Commercial Lunar Payload Services contracts are indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contracts with a combined maximum contract value of $2.6 billion during the next 10 years", said a NASA statement. Following on the commercial cargo and commercial crew programs for the International Space Station, NASA hopes to be one of many customers purchasing a service for less than it would cost for the government to develop and launch systems on its own. The company is now developing a "Peregrine Lander" aimed at orbital and surface operations for any lunar destination.

NASA plans to create a sustainable moon mission that will lead to a human mission to Mars, and these Commercial Lunar Payload Services contracts are a big part of it.

NASA's next lunar science experiments will arrive at the Moon via a spacecraft built by one of nine private companies - a first for one of the agency's science missions.

Anatoly Petrukovich of the Russian Academy of Sciences said: "A trip to Mars with the current state of space travel technology is too complicated". Robotic exploration of Mars has been underway for years, with the InSight mission landing on the surface this week and another rover landing planned for 2020.

Russian national space agency Roscomos first envisioned the three-stage plan in 2014.
