nasa use comercial rocket

United States Space Agency (US) NASA will use commercial rockets for their next moon mission. This possibility was revealed by NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine.

The commercial vehicle that NASA will use for its lunar mission is Orion. Orion is the next NASA crew vehicle and its flight, dubbed the Exploration Mission-1, is scheduled to launch in June 2020.

Before flying, Orion certainly needs to be tested first. The first test is planned as an uncrewed test and involves sending crew vehicles around the moon for six days.

It was believed the next moon mission would mark the debut of the Space Launch System or SLS, NASA’s heavy rocket. However, due to continuous production problems and cost overruns with the SLS program, the EM-1 launch date was delayed several times.

In order for the moon mission to develop, the government was willing to send a mission with a commercial rocket. However, a firm decision has not been made and will be decided in the next few weeks, as reported by Ubergizmo, Friday (03/15/2019).

As is known, the only heavy-lift rocket currently operating capable of supporting missiles is the Falcon Heavy from SpaceX. In addition, there are also rockets from ULA, namely Delta IV.
