Bezos' Blue Origin Creates Team to Build Lunar Lander for NASA

The lander's first trip to the Moon will have people aboard, so Blue Origin and friends can't take any chances.

"This is a national team for a national priority", said Bezos, announcing a partnership with three other companies-Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Draper-to support NASA's Artemis Program.

Lockheed Martin will provide the ascent element, the vehicle that carries the crew cabin down to the surface and back to the the Gateway. Blue Origin calls this group, consisting of four different companies, a & # 39; national team & # 39; that each will play a role in developing a & # 39; Human Landing System for the Artemis mission & # 39;. This is the only way to get back to the moon fast, and this time we're going back to the moon, we're not going back to the moon to visit.

Bezos also showed off a time-lapse video of a 7-meter-wide (23-foot-wide) nose cone for Blue Origin's orbital-class New Glenn rocket being fabricated at a Florida factory. Draper, which is a not-for-profit research and development organization, will work on descent guidance and flight avionics.

Blue Origin, as prime contractor, would provide the "descent element" vehicle based on its Blue Moon lunar lander that it announced in May.

With 2024 quickly approaching, new space startup Blue Origin is teaming up with legacy NASA and Apollo 11 contractors to develop and build a landing system that will return humans to the moon.

In May, Bezos unveiled a mockup of the Blue Moon lander and revealed that his privately held space company was working on a hydrogen-fueled BE-7 engine to provide propulsion.

Like Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman is already involved in other aspects of the Artemis program, including the solid rocket boosters for NASA's heavy-lift Space Launch System rocket, the astronaut escape system for the Orion capsule, and the habitation module for the Gateway outpost. This new space station Gateway will be the permanent home for the lander. Northrop Grumman, meanwhile, will produce the Transfer Element that brings the landing system toward the Moon. Watching Americans return to the moon would be a fantastic sight!

Boeing has said it also plans to bid on the lunar lander contract. "So we've pulled together the best in the industry to make this happen with our partner NASA".

Whichever company is ready first will be tapped for the first lunar landing. NASA has not yet announced how much it will award in its contract for the lunar lander. "Lockheed Martin is, as far as I know, the only company that actually lands on the surface of Mars. And of course they did that for the original Apollo Program way back then, but today it will be done in a completely new way".
