NASA helps Spacex and Blue Origin develop technology for future missions

The United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) plans to re-launch astronauts to the moon in 2024 as part of the Artemis program.

In order to prepare this and the next missions, the space agency selected 13 American companies that will be assisted in the development of new technologies designed for future projects.

Jim Reuter, NASA’s deputy head of Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD), explained that the agency has identified key areas that it needs new technologies for future missions, including planned manned missions to the Moon and Mars.

Among the partners of the space agency in the framework of the Artemis program was SpaceX, which will be jointly with the Space Center. Kennedy in Florida is working to further improve its technology to perform the vertical landing of superheavy rockets on the lunar surface.

In turn, Blue Origin will collaborate with the NASA Johnson Space Center in creating a navigation system that will ensure the accuracy of spacecraft landing in various regions of the moon. The company will also work with Glenn and Johnson on a fuel cell system for its Blue Moon lunar landing module. In addition, NASA will assist Blue Origin in the development of heat-resistant materials for liquid-propellant atomizer nozzles that will be used in spacecraft for lunar missions.
