As we make strides to return humans to the Moon under Artemis, we’re asking U.S. companies to help us develop a sustainable presence there by proposing new concepts to transport astronauts between lunar orbit and the lunar surface.

Astronauts on the Artemis III mission will be the first to land on the Moon in more than 50 years, and they will ride from lunar orbit to the surface and back up on a SpaceX Starship Human Landing System. The winner of the new contract will develop technology that complements this system, with the capability to dock to a lunar orbiting space station known as Gateway, increase crew capacity, and transport more science and technology to the surface for missions beyond Artemis III.
