Marshall selected to lead NASA human lunar lander program


The lunar lander that will bring astronauts to the moon in 2024 will be born in Alabama's "Rocket City," NASA announced on August 16th.


NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Huntsville will lead the development of a lunar lander for the agency's Artemis program, which aims to land astronauts on the moon in 2024. Huntsville is known as "Rocket City" due to its long history of building rockets for NASA. MSFC is also currently building the Space Launch System megarocket that will launch NASA's Artemis missions.


According to NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, the center was selected to be in charge of the lunar lander because of its extensive experience with propulsion systems, which will be crucial for executing safe landings and liftoffs from the lunar surface.
