NASA has finalized the contract for the initial crew module of the agency’s Gateway lunar orbiting outpost.
The Gateway is a key component of NASA’s long-term Artemis architecture and the HALO capability furthers our plans for human exploration at the Moon in preparation for future human missions to Mars
These first two elements of the Gateway – HALO and PPE – will launch together in 2023.
This is a recent update to the agency’s plans to build a sustainable presence at the Moon as part of the Artemis program.
NASA’s Launch Services Program will select a launch provider for PPE and HALO by late fall 2020.
