NASA is working on a space station that will orbit the Moon. That is the #Gateway space station. (Sometimes referred to as the “Lunar Gateway” if you ever hear it that way.) The living quarters onboard Gateway are known as #HALO: Habitation and Logistics Outpost. HALO is being developed by #Northrop Grumman Corp. and a sub-contractor Paragon Space Development Corp. Specifically, Paragon is developing the environmental control and life-support systems for HALO. That’s what this article is about. Lots of good info.

In 2023, NASA plans on landing a rover on the Moon to investigate sources of water. This will aid in the understanding of how to live on the Moon (and other planets). Of course, it has a catchy acronym: #VIPER which stands for “Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover”. This article explains the mission and #Astrobotic_Technologie‘s development of the VIPER rover. There’s an embedded video to play.

Every week on I publish a newsletter containing space-related articles that I have found interesting.

I read a lot of material on the space industry. There's a lot going on out there other than NASA and SpaceX (although I am not excluding those sources). It is my hope that this newsletter will bring these interesting articles and insights to your attention, and that you, too, will gain a broader appreciation for the vastness of space.

Most of these articles are curated from my own social media posts. Each issue contains links directly to the article that has caught my attention. The article links are not affiliate links - I don't make money from them. They're just what I have discovered and want to share.

The newsletter is emailed every Saturday morning around 10:00 AM.

It's FREE, but ... if you would consider supporting this newsletter, please click on the "Members" link at the top of the page.
