The preliminary design suggests that the lander will be able to carry up to four people and 900 kg (2,000 pounds) of cargo to the moon, with enough life support for a two-week mission.

Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos' space venture, Blue Origin, has signed a letter of intent to cooperate with Germany's OHB Group and MT Aerospace on a future mission to the moon that'll use Blue Origin's Blue Moon lunar lander.

The NASA-led program will see the two space agencies build a lunar satellite much like the International Space Station (ISS) that can home astronauts and will orbit the moon. "This lander could be used to establish a surface base, deliver scientific or commercial cargo and perform Moon exploration", Lisa Callahan added. To fulfill its vision, the space agency wants to rely on private space enterprises to meet its hardware needs, and Lockheed Martin is taking this role very seriously.

"We're not content with just leaving behind footprints", he said, during the 30-minute speech, reiterating the Trump administration's objective of "establishing a permanent presence around and on the Moon". First of all, Gateway needs to be deployed, and for this happen NASA needs to launch the Space Launch System (SLS), the most powerful rocket humans have ever built. The first Blue Moon mission to the lunar surface could take place by as early as 2023, company executives have said.

NASA's goal is to send a manned mission to Mars in the 2030s.
