The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is planning for its Artemis program. Through this mission or program, the scientists aim at bringing humans back to Moon. The mission also includes exploring hidden secrets of the red planet, MARS.
The researchers and experts at the U.S based space agency have finally given details on how they are planning to send humans back to Moon through this mission. The officials at the space agency are designing some plans that would be perfect in terms of sustainability concept and they also revealed some important for their infrastructure.
There are three main components of the Artemis mission that has been revealed by NASA. These include;
A lunar terrain vehicle (LTV). This vehicle would is used by the crew to explore the moon by traveling in this vehicle. The most important thing related to this vehicle is that it would be operated by a crew member and would not be automatic as we usually see. The astronomers traveling in this vehicle would have to wear proper gear as this vehicle would not be having an enclosed cockpit.
A habitable mobility platform. This platform would be a very large rover that would be fully pressurized and contained. This rover would enable crew members to take longer trips from the landing site of the spacecraft.
A lunar foundation surface habitat. This place or habitat would act as a more permanent and fixed location home for the crew members during shorter stays on the surface. Habitat of this kind could house up to four astronauts in a single time and could be moved according to preferences of their surface missions.
Another important component of these missions in the Gateway space station that is orbiting the Moon. It would be the place where operations would be carried by the crew members who will not be involved in surface exploration.
