Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-06-05

America’s first private moon lander of the 21st century will be designed by India, after National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) outsourced production for its space vehicles.

 

NASA is set to spend over $250 million in hiring private companies to transport scientific missions to the moon.


 

Three corporations like, Astrobotic, Intuitive Machines, and Orbit Beyond have been awarded contracts for missions into 2021.

 

According to a Quartz report, Orbit Beyond has the earliest target date for its mission, in September 2020.


 

Moreover, the report added that Orbit Beyond is unique among the nine other participants in NASA’s Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) program in that it is a consortium. The design and construction of its lander will be performed by TeamIndus, an Indian company.

 

In July 2019, the India Space Research Organization (ISRO) will launch its 1st moon lander, Chandrayaan-2.
