Thales Alenia Space wins ticket for future lunar space station

New Factory 14/10/2020

GOOD NEWS Capitalizing on the know-how acquired in the realization of pressurized systems for the International Space Station (ISS), the Franco-Italian industrialist Thales Alenia Space will provide habitat modules for the crew, communication and refueling for its lunar equivalent.

Thales Alenia Space (TAS) has landed the moon. In its own way. The joint venture between Thales (67%) and the Italian group Leornardo (33%) has won major contracts with the European Space Agency (ESA) aimed at supplying key technologies for the future manned international station which will orbit around of the Moon, as he announced Wednesday, October 14.

Dubbed the Gateway, this station is a major component of NASA's Artemis program to return to the Moon by 2024. Unlike the ISS, it will only be inhabited intermittently by crews of four astronauts for periods of one. at three months.

NASA and Nokia to install mobile telephony on the Moon

AFP • 19 / 10 / 2020

Hello Moon? The Finnish group Nokia will manufacture for NASA what will be the first operational mobile telephone network on the Moon, as part of the permanent human base project of the US space agency, he announced Monday.

The “ultra-compact, energy-efficient and space-resistant” 4G network, which will be “the very first cellular network on the Moon”, is to be deployed on the surface of the Moon by the end of 2022, via the lander on which works the American company Intuitive Machines, specifies Nokia in a press release.

NASA confirmed to AFP that it would be the first cellular network on the Moon, where the last human footsteps dates back to 1972.

The network, which must be self-configuring during its deployment on the Moon, must in particular make it possible to ensure the wireless connection of "any activity that the astronauts will have to carry out, allowing the exchange of communication by voice and video, telemetry and the exchange of biometric data, or the deployment and operation of robots, "continues the Finnish group.

The contract, worth $ 14,1 million, was won by the US subsidiary of Nokia as part of a series of cutting-edge contracts unveiled by NASA on Friday.

"The system will allow communications to the surface of the Moon over greater distances, at greater speed, and more reliably than current standards," the space agency said in its statement.

Two American astronauts, including a woman, are scheduled to walk on the Moon in 2024 during the Artemis 3 mission, and NASA wants to establish a permanent base there, a prelude to a possible mission to Mars.

NASA chose SpaceX to send America's next astronauts to the moon, a first since 1972, the space agency said on Friday, granting Elon Musk's company a major victory.
The $ 2,9 billion contract is for the Starship prototype spacecraft, which is being tested at a SpaceX site in Texas.

April 17th

"Today, I am very excited, and we are all very excited to announce that we have awarded SpaceX the development of our moon landing system," said Lisa Watson-Morgan, head of this program at NASA.

SpaceX beat Dynetics and the company Blue Origin, by Jeff Bezos, and becomes the sole supplier of the system, a break from the past, because NASA often chose several companies in the event of failure of one of them.

According to industry analysts, this decision consolidates the company of Elon Musk, created in 2002 with the aim of conquering Mars, in its place of privileged partner of NASA in the private sector.

Last year, SpaceX became the first private company to successfully send a team aboard the International Space Station, giving Americans back the ability to accomplish this feat, for the first time since the end of the space shuttle program. " Shuttle ".

SpaceX showcased its reusable Starship spacecraft, designed to carry large crews and large cargoes for long space trips, and which can land upright.

Prototypes of the rocket are currently being tested in Texas, but the four attempted flights have so far all ended in explosions.

As part of the Artemis program, which aims to send men back to the Moon, NASA wants to use the heavy SLS (Space Launch System) rocket to launch four astronauts aboard an Orion capsule, which will then dock at a station lunar orbital called Gateway.

The Starship rocket would wait, ready to receive two crew members for the final leg of the journey to the moon's surface.

The idea is for the Gateway station to act as a go-between, but for the initial mission Orion could dock directly to Starship, Watson-Morgan said.

The astronauts would then spend a week on the moon, before boarding the Starship rocket to return to lunar orbit, and return to Earth aboard Orion.

At the same time, SpaceX aims to combine its Starship spacecraft with its Super Heavy rocket, in order to create a machine 120 meters high, the most powerful launch vehicle ever deployed.

Man set foot on the moon for the last time in 1972, with the Apollo program.

NASA wants to return there, and establish a lasting presence with a lunar space station, to test new technologies that will pave the way for a crewed mission to Mars.

In 2019, then vice president Mike Pence challenged NASA to land the first woman and the next man on the moon by 2024, but that timeline is likely to be relaxed under Joe Biden's presidency. .

The administration of the Democratic president also announced a new objective, that of sending the first person from an ethnic minority to the moon as part of the Artemis program.

So it will look like this:

NASA selects SpaceX to develop crewed lunar lander
by Jeff Foust - April 16, 2021

Image

NASA has selected SpaceX as the sole company to win a contract to develop and demonstrate a crewed lunar lander, while keeping the door open for others to compete for future missions.

NASA announced April 16 that it awarded a contract to SpaceX for Option A of the Human Landing System (HLS) program, which covers development of a crewed lunar lander and a demonstration mission. The fixed-price, milestone-based contract has a total value of $ 2.89 billion.

SpaceX was one of three companies that received initial HLS contracts nearly one year ago for early design work on their lander concepts. SpaceX offered a version of its Starship vehicle, launched on its Super Heavy booster and refueled in low Earth orbit before going to the moon.

................
That Option A award will support development of the Starship lunar lander, and include at least one uncrewed test flight to land on the lunar surface before NASA proceeds with a crewed mission. “We want to make sure that everything is checked out and everything is ready” before putting NASA astronauts on the spacecraft, said Lisa Watson-Morgan, NASA HLS program manager.

for the initial date of the return of men to the Moon in 2024, this remains very uncertain.

Yes, they have an interest in successfully planting potatoes and salads, you never know ...
If they come back ... On the other hand, no problem of space to park their Tesla : Cheesy:

rather 70 years old ... Aiming for the moon and we walked on the moon ... Dating from the early 50s ... But hey ... It is true that it is very similar ...

Yes except that the rocket does not yet exist on the Moon ... let's say at least another 10 years?

And add the duration of the germination of the idea in the head of RG ... we feel the 90 years.

It's funny RG was inspired a lot by reality ... except for these 2 albums ... oh yes there was not much real at the time, I wonder what he thought of LEM
