As part of the agreement, the unmanned spacecraft will be fitted with a NASA laser reflector created to help locate the exact position of the spaceship after landing.

Lockheed's vehicle would be be twice as tall as the Lunar Module used during the Apollo missions to the Moon almost half a century ago, reports Ars Technica, which carried two astronauts for brief stints of just a few days.

Lockheed Martin has revealed a crewed lunar lander concept for future missions to the Moon.

An EA spokesperson said on Thursday it was also closely monitoring the situation. "I see Ronaldo calm, he is ready to play". Ronaldo is being sued by Kathryn Mayorga, who says he raped her in the penthouse suite of a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.


Deep space travel, such as a journey to Mars, can significantly damage the gastrointestinal (GI) tissue of astronauts, and raise the risk of stomach and colon tumours, according to scientists including one of Indian origin.

To achieve this goal, NASA has called on aerospace industry producers to present plans to build a space station that orbits around the moon, dubbed the "Lunar Gateway", as well as spacecraft that land on the moon.

Lockheed says that it will be re-using some of the technology developed for NASA's Orion deep space exploration vehicle including avionics, life support, and communications and navigation systems, to reduce cost and development time for the lander.

Man uses $100,000 meteorite as doorstop for decades
He reportedly used the meteorite as a doorstop and sent it to school with his children for show and tell . A U.S. farmer and his son saw a shooting star come crashing onto their property one night in the 1930s.


The spacecraft can fly a crew of four to the moon's orbit and then send them down to the surface in a lander. "Because this lander doesn't have to endure the punishment of re-entering Earth's atmosphere, it can be re-flown many times over without needing significant and costly refurbishment".

In a Post on Facebook, SpaceIL CEO Ido Antebi said it was "a great honor" to collaborate with NASA and that he hoped that this upcoming mission would lead to more "space missions and other technological challenges" in the future. First of all, Gateway needs to be deployed, and for this happen NASA needs to launch the Space Launch System (SLS), the most powerful rocket humans have ever built.

The Israeli Space Agency (ISA) announced Wednesday that it had signed an agreement with NASA to engage the American space agency in the first Israeli moon mission.

David says the man who sold him the barn described the unbelievable tale of the meteorite making an impact crater in the backyard. The meteorite's owner said that regardless of the buyer, he will donate 10 percent of the sale amount to the university.
