Gateway to the Moon

Post by brian livesey »

A company with sites in Bristol, Belfast and Oxfordshire, Thales Alenia Space, has done a deal with Nasa through the British Space Agency to construct a chemical refuelling station. The station will assist in transferring fuel to the Lunar Gateway space station that will orbit the moon and operate as a communication hub and science laboratory.
NASA plans to land both a male and female astronaut on the moon by 2024. The British built refuelling station is due to be launched in 2027.
