(ORDO NEWS) — Aerospace company Firefly Aerospace is developing launch vehicles to launch satellites into space. Recently, they were lucky enough to win a tender from NASA and conclude an agreement with SpaseX.
The launch of the Blue Ghost shuttle to the moon is expected in 2023. Elon Musk confirmed the beginning of cooperation. BUSINESS WIRE informs about it.
Space X will not only take part in the development of the shuttle. She is going to work on modifying and expanding the functionality of the Falcon 9 rocket.
The study of the Moon has already begun and by 2023 it is planned to send the first shuttle to the Earth’s satellite. A large-scale launch of 10 cargoes for Blue Ghost is being prepared.
They are all unrelated. When the shuttle is launched, the cargo will already be on the surface of the moon. They should serve as a research station.
NASA in February 2021 created a tender for the construction of a concept rover. The winner is Firefly Aerospace. SpaseX wasted no time and immediately decided to conclude a cooperation contract with them, or rather, to provide assistance in the development and creation of the project.
