Then in fiscal year 2022, the agency plans to order three additional Orion spacecraft for Artemis missions VI-VIII for $1.9 billion.

The agency has awarded the Orion Production and Operations Contract (OPOC) to Lockheed Martin of Littleton, Colorado.

NASA and Lockheed Martin have finalized a contract for the production and operations of six Orion spacecraft missions and the ability to order up to 12 in total.

According to Advanced Space and NASA, the so-called "CubeSat" will undertake a special orbit of the moon that will test navigation methods for a planned moon outpost called Gateway that NASA expects astronauts to visit before they descend to the moon, which will follow a similar orbit.

For the Artemis program, as the new push for the Moon is called, NASA is developing a series of new technologies, ranging from the spacecraft that will get the astronauts to their destination to the spacesuits that keeps them alive.

"This contract clearly presentations NASA's commitment not most fine to Orion, however moreover to Artemis and its courageous goal of sending americans to the Moon in the next 5 years", Rick Ambrose, executive vp of Lockheed Martin Home, talked about in a observation. It should help NASA save money on production costs, the report said. "We're equally committed to Orion and Artemis and producing these vehicles with a spotlight on worth, agenda and mission success".

The primary spacecraft, Artemis III, will carry the primary girl and the subsequent man to the moon in 2024, the place they'll dock with the Gateway and finally land on the floor. It's a spaceship like none other.

NASA recently tasked a company to open production on the spacecraft that will bring astronauts to the moon as part of the Artemis program.

"Orion is a highly capable, state-of-the-art spacecraft, designed specifically for deep space missions with astronauts, and an integral part of NASA's infrastructure for Artemis missions and future exploration of the solar system", Bridenstine added. Work on the spacecraft for the Artemis II mission, the first crewed flight to the Moon, is well underway at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
