In Stage Two, we'll turn cislunar
space into an industrial park where we begin generating value from extraterrestrial resources.
This region is referred to as CisLunar
Space and is considered by many planetary scientists to be the gateway to the rest of the solar system.
The project, if successful, would be the first ever human journey into cislunar
space, and poses some significant technological challenges, such as protecting the craft from cosmic radiation and solar flares.
Tenders are invited for: Expert: pre-development of 20 kw het (hall effect thruster) for cislunar
The depot is not a replacement for the Deep Space Gateway, which is the crew-tended cislunar
space station, proposed by NASA and Roscosmos, that will be deployed by 2020.
spacecraft is projected to kick off in the 2020s.
The Space Launch System is NASAs new heavy-lift launch vehicle that is being built to take crew and cargo to destinations beyond earth orbit, including to cislunar
space and eventually Mars.
His focus is on cislunar
space development first, then Mars when the cislunar
infrastructure is in place, at least to some degree.
NASAs Space Launch System, which Boeing is helping develop, would deliver the habitat to cislunar
space near the Moon.
NASA's JPL is the grand master of interplanetary communication, telemetry, and travel, and routinely cooperates with other space agencies to track and communicate with space probes that have left our immediate cislunar
During testimony this afternoon to the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Space, Frank Culbertson, President of the companys Space Systems Group, said, A lunar-orbit habitat will extend Americas leadership in space to the cislunar
NextSTEP is a public-private partnership model that seeks commercial development of deep space exploration capabilities to support more extensive human spaceflight missions in the proving ground of space around the moon, known as cislunar
space, and to enable transit to Mars.
