Aerospace company has selected SpaceX for flying its Blue Ghost Lunar Lander to the moon in the year 2023, on a rocket named Falcon 9.
The Blue Ghost will be carrying the 10 payloads for NASA's commercial Lunar payload services. According to the Space agency, the mission is forming a part of a $93.3 million order task and also separately contracted for commercial payloads.
Firefly’s SVP of spacecraft, Shea Ferring said in an announcement “Firefly is excited to fly our Blue Ghost spacecraft on the highly reliable Falcon 9, which will deliver NASA instruments and technology demonstration payloads that support NASA science goals and NASA's Artemis program.”
He also further added that “The high performance of SpaceX's Falcon 9 launch vehicle permits a lunar transit using minimal Blue Ghost propulsion resources, thereby allowing the lander to deliver more than 150 kg of payload to the lunar surface."
The deal with Nasa was agreed in February. The deals will involve the delivery of 10 research payloads which are a part of the agency’s mission for conducting the experiment and in demonstration of other technology on the moon for investigating the surface condition.
