Having agreed with SpaceX for the first manned flight to the Moon in 50 years, NASA preferred SpaceX for the next manned Moon mission.
As you know, NASA now leaves this job to private companies instead of developing its rockets for space travel and research. Instead of spending money on developing its own rockets, it pays companies it contracts with to provide them with rockets. SpaceX, founded by Elon Musk, is one of these companies that prepare rockets for NASA.
NASA, which is very satisfied with the rockets offered by the company, which has carried out many successful flights to the International Space Station, continues to expand its partnership with Elon Musk’s company.
As you may recall, NASA agreed with SpaceX for the first manned mission to the Moon in 50 years. While preparations continue for this first manned Moon trip, which is planned to take place in 2025, NASA has signed a new agreement with Elon Musk’s company for other manned flights to the Moon.
The first manned flight to the Moon in years is expected to take place in 2025, if nothing goes wrong. This flight will be made with the Starship space shuttle, which is still under construction. The new agreement signed by NASA with the company was signed for the second manned Moon mission to take place in 2027. In this second mission, the Starship space shuttle will be used.
NASA and SpaceX conduct many manned flights today, but these flights are limited to the International Space Station (ISS) in low Earth orbit. However, the successful launch of NASA’s new megarocket SLS recently shows that all the conditions are ripe for reaching more distant targets such as the Moon.
