The US space agency NASA prepares for the construction of the much noticed moon station. The name of the lunar station is Lunar Orbital Platform Gateway. According to the latest reports, NASA plans to build the Lunar Orbital Platform Gateway in 2019. NASA's primary goal is to send people back to the Moon and send missions to and from Mars.
A deep-space gateway is required that will be met by NASA's upcoming Moon Space Station. NASA has developed plans for their upcoming Lunar Space Station. It has announced plans to build the first components of the Lunar Orbital Platform Gateway in early 2019. The space gateway is sent into lunar orbit in two phases. NASA will first manufacture the propulsion and propulsion elements that drive the gateway and then send it into space.
Afterwards, the space agency will begin to build the familiar components for the Lunar Station and send them to the Moon by 2022. According to NASA, the Lunar Orbital Platform Gateway will be fully operational by 2025. Unlike the International Space Station (ISS), which rotates in the near-Earth orbit, the Deep Space Gateway will travel along the Near Rectilinear Halo Orbit (NRHO). , The NRHO will ensure that the lunar platform passes closely enough through the moon and travels far enough into space to stay in contact with NASA while achieving the maximum solar energy needed for solar energy.
Harley Thronson, senior technologist NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center states: A gateway near the Moon has been the target of space research scientists and designers for nearly two decades. According to NASA, only four people can reside within the Lunar Orbital Platform Gateway and must complete their research and experimentation within 30 days. NASA scientists are trying their best to commission the Lunar Space Station by 2025 so that they can plan missions to and beyond Mars.
Dr. Richard Binzel, a planetary scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said, "If we ever go to Mars, we have to learn to operate far from Earth, we need that operational experience, and I think that's the motivation for that Deep Space Gateway – gaining operational experience outside the comfort zone of the near-Earth orbit.
