The Three Companies that are chosen by NASA

Three private companies that are entrusted by NASA are Astrobotic in Pittsburgh, Intuitive Machines in Houston, and Orbit Beyond in New Jersey. Each of them will be equipped with 79.5, 77, and 97 million dollars to anticipate cargo delivery in the future.

According to NASA as quoted by Slash Gears, Saturday (2019/6/1), Astrobotic proposes delivery up to 14 cargos to the great crater of the moon called Lacus Mortis on July 2021. Whereas Intuitive Machines proposes up to five cargos delivery to the dark side of the moon called Oceanus Procellarum on the same date.

Meanwhile, Orbit Beyond has proposed up to four cargos delivery to lava plate Mare Imbrium on September 2020. They stated that they would decide which cargo that will be involved in each flight by the end of this summer.

Even if none has been chosen, they are considering sending instruments that involve with lander position determination, doing lunar science, and detecting how human activity has its effect on the moon environment, and many more.

“We commit to cooperate with industries to enable the next circle of moon exploration. Our chosen companies represent the community of various interesting America minor companies, each with their unique and innovative approach to bring them to the moon. We hope that we can cooperate with them to send cargo and opening the door to return human to the moon,” states NASA CLPS program manager Chris Culbert.
