NASA progresses in its Lunar Exploration Gateway project

Industry news

  • NASA, in collaboration with its partners, is making continued progress in the development of Gateway, the first space station on the moon. Gateway would function as a settlement for astronauts conducting scientific research and preparing for missions to the lunar South Pole, a location of scientific interest due to the existence of water ice.

  • The Gateway project is a collaboration between NASA and various international space agencies, including the European Space Agency (ESA), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC). The CSA has contributed external robotics and the MBRSC developed the Crew and Science Airlock to enable spacewalks and the transfer of scientific instruments.

  • The Habitation and Logistics Outpost (HALO), one of the four Gateway modules built by NASA and its partner Northrop Grumman, is undergoing testing in Turin, Italy. The HALO will accommodate living and working space for teams of astronauts and docking ports for spacecraft.

  • Along with HALO, Gateway will initially launch into lunar orbit with the Power and Propulsion Element provided by Maxar Space Systems. The propulsion element is crucial for the space station's mobility and power generation.

  • The Gateway space station would play a critical role in NASA's Artemis program for lunar exploration. The advanced laboratories and research facilities in Gateway would assist astronauts in exploration, conducting experiments, and supporting long-duration missions.
