The American space agency, NASA, says today that it has selected 11 private companies to do studies and create prototype human landers for its month-long exploitation program.
The program is expected to launch American astronauts, including the first woman in the & # 39; south pole; a month at 2024, and support sustainable missions by 2028.
Under the selected companies are SpaceX, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Blue Origin, many of whom are already contractors of NASA.

The lander is a flexible lander who can deliver beautiful and green landings and, ultimately, provides a sustainable human presence at a month's worth, according to Blue Origin.
These companies are required to study or develop prototypes in the second six months that increase the programmed risk for the elements of origin, transfer and payment of a potentially human launch system according to NASA.
NASA presented astronauts to transport astronauts in a human landing system of a transfer station called Gateway to low-lane, with a design element to bring them to the surface and an element of rebellion to bring them back to the gateway.
The total price terms for all companies is 45.5 million euros and the companies will contribute at least 20 percent of the total cost of the project, according to NASA.
