NASA Awards Artemis Contract for Gateway Logistics Services

Quote

NASA has selected SpaceX of Hawthorne, California, as the first U.S. commercial provider under the Gateway Logistics Services contract to deliver cargo, experiments and other supplies to the agency’s Gateway in lunar orbit. The award is a significant step forward for NASA’s Artemis program that will land the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024 and build a sustainable human lunar presence.

At the Moon, NASA and its partners will gain the experience necessary to mount a historic human mission to Mars.

Well it's scheduled for 2024, so you have a pretty good chance.

I have always hoped that we would return astronauts to the surface of the moon whilst there were some of the original Moon walkers still alive.

Of the twelve men that walked on the moon, only four are still living and the youngest of those is Charlie Duke, who is 84.

Of the twelve men that flew to the moon but didn't land seven are still alive. The youngest of these is Ken Mattingly who is also 84 (5 months younger than Duke). We lost Al Worden from this group, at the age of 88, just 10 days ago,

I'm keeping my fingers cross that at least one of them gets to see us repeat their amazing feat.
