Big news: To the Moon, together. For science.
Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre مركز محمد بن راشد للفضاء will provide Gateway’s Crew and Science Airlock, and NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration will fly a UAE astronaut to Gateway on a future NASA Artemis mission. The airlock is a critical Gateway component that will expand the small station's capabilities and allow astronauts to conduct broader groundbreaking deep space investigations.

From completion of major hardware fabrication milestones through continued cooperation with Canadian Space Agency, ESA - European Space Agency, JAXA(宇宙航空研究開発機構), Northrop Grumman Corporation and Maxar, to lunar lander integration planning with Blue Origin, 2023 comes to an end...but Gateway's story is just beginning.

Like Vanessa says in this awesome NASA's Johnson Space Center 2023 recap, we're going farther together... for all humankind.

Gateway will make history as humanity's first space station to orbit the Moon thanks to the legacy of the International Space Station.

This week we celebrate 25 years of the international collaborative marvel that has paved the way for Gateway and future NASA Artemis missions to return humans to the Moon. Once there, we will make the discoveries that will allow the next giant leap: sending the first astronauts to Mars.

Gateway's international partner, ESA - European Space Agency is shaking things up with 🎶 good, good, good vibrations🎵

An exact copy of the communications system that will be used on Gateway's Habitation and Logistics Outpost (HALO) recently underwent vibration testing to ensure it can withstand intense shaking that the real HALO Lunar Communications system (HLCS) will experience throughout the lunar space station's launch. The HLCS passed with flying colors! Copy that! Learn more about the testing and unique communications that will keep Gateway in touch with astronauts and nearby satellites and rovers around and on the Moon. 👉 https://go.nasa.gov/47yOAd6

Getting pumped 💪 to watch NASA's Space Launch System take center stage for NASA Artemis 2!

During the future Artemis 4 mission, SLS will launch into lunar orbit a crewed Orion Spacecraft, along with the International Habitation (I-Hab) module, as a co-manifested payload. I-Hab, provided by international partner, ESA - European Space Agency, will dock with Gateway's initial habitation module, HALO. Together, the two elements will provide a home for Astronauts to live, conduct science, and prepare for lunar surface missions.

Katherine Cook, Deep Space Logistics expert from NASA's Kennedy Space Center, recently returned from an immersive experience with Gateway international partner JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency). Japanese hospitality and strong spirit of collaboration are two key takeaways Cook plans to use to inspire her team at KSC. "Otsukaresama desh*ta!"

Japan is providing the HTV-XG spacecraft for launch and delivery of logistics and resupply missions for Gateway, as well as critical components to Gateway's International Habitation Module.

A yearlong journey of cultural and professional development overseas has a NASA Deep Space Logistics employee excited about current and future collaboration

Happy Halloween! Gateway ghouls may want to dress up as Callie Rodriguez, commander of the graphic series, "First Woman." In the latest issue, Callie overcomes obstacles on the Moon, similar to what crews aboard Gateway might experience on future NASA Artemis missions when Artemis crew will use the Human Landing System spacecraft docked to Gateway to enable transit to and from the lunar surface.

The brand new issue of "First Woman" is out today! 🚀

Congratulations to on a successful launch and journey to explore deep space heavy metals!

Gateway's turn on the launchpad aboard a SpaceX Falcon Heavy will be here before we know it. Once launched, it will take Gateway about 1 year to transit to a unique orbit around the Moon that will bring the space station within about 1,000 miles/1,500 km at its closest approach to the lunar surface, and about 43,500 miles/70,000 km at its farthest.

THEN: Let's do something never done before. Go.
NOW: Let's do something never done before. Stay.
Gateway is critical for NASA Artemis missions that will establish a long-term human presence on and around the Moon.

THEN & NOW: Apollo to Artemis
More than 50 years ago, NASA first sent humans to the Moon under the Apollo program. Now, NASA is preparing to send humans around the Moon and subsequently back to the lunar surface as part of the Artemis program. Check out this thread of then-and-now images of the Apollo and Artemis crew and hardware here at NASA's Kennedy Space Center as we prepare for our next giant leap in exploration.
