The Vice-President, and Mike Pence is a celebration of the Apollo 11 team that made the moon landing possible, and to discuss the future of space exploration for the united states.
NASA has unveiled more details about its vision for the Artemis Lunar Lander and the AMERICAN astronauts on the moon’s surface by 2024.
In an announcement on the Federal Business Opportunities website, NASA is looking for “the proposals made by the industry, for the development of an integrated human lunar landers, and the implementation of a manned flight demonstration at the lunar surface by 2024.”
The Artemis program aims to develop the country by U.s. astronauts on the Moon by 2024 and to build a sustainable human presence on Earth’s natural satellite. However, it will also make history by landing the first woman on the Moon.
THE APOLLO 11 ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR, PENCE IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WITH THE ORION CAPSULE FOR THE MANNED MOON MISSIONS AND IS NOW READY FOR DEBUT FLIGHT
Speaking at nasa’s Kennedy Space Center on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing on July 20th, Vice-President Mike Pence has announced that the Orion capsule carrying American astronauts back to the Moon, is now complete.

The document will be posted on the fbo web site, the NASA explains that the astronauts will be flown in the Orion spacecraft to the ‘Gateway’ of the international space station, in orbit around the Moon. The Gateway is the ship that will be used to support the transfer of crew and supplies to the Lunar lander.
“The Gateway will be our base of operations in lunar orbit, it is our job, and the service module on missions to the surface of the Moon. Use it as a gateway to the human-landing system, in orbit around the Moon, giving us access to the whole of the moon’s surface, as well as a place to fix up and fill up the tank of a landing system,” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine in a statement. “This is no small feat, and is a building of the 21st century, the landing system from the government and private sector teams.”

The first mission capabilities, to bid for the 2024 games is going to be landing two astronauts on the Moon’s south pole. The astronauts living and working on the date for 6.5 days, according to NASA.

In the longer term, Countries will need to transport four people on the south pole of the moon.
“This is the first mission, two crew members will descend to the earth’s surface, and the two of them remain on the Gateway/Orion,” said NASA, in its announcement. “The sustainable phase of the missions, it is anticipated that four members of the crew on the surface.”

During the first lunar landing capabilities, to bid for the 2024 games, it is not necessary for a reusable vehicle, that will change. “Vehicle recycling is a necessity,” according to the space agency.
NASA is expected to be a three-stage landing system, which will be used to get astronauts to and from the surface of the moon. The three-stage concept also includes a transfer element in the journey to the moon is a Gateway to low-lunar orbit, and a descent element to one of the crew members on the plane, and a growth element to them, go back to the Gateway,” said in a written statement. “From there, it would be the board Now, before the 250,000 mile journey back to Earth.”
The space agency, however, said that it would also be interested in alternative approaches “that will achieve the same long-term goals of the global lunar access to a reusable landing system.”
INDIA TO LAUNCH MISSION TO THE MOON
After the Apollo 11 astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on the Moon on 20 July 1969, in just 10 more men, all Americans, walked on the surface of the moon. The last NASA astronaut who set foot on the Moon, Apollo 17 Mission Commander Gene Cernan, on Dec. 14, 1972.
