Lockheed Martin has created a full-sized residential prototype lunar module station Gateway

The American company Lockheed Martin has completed a full-sized prototype of a lunar orbital residential module, which can form the basis for the design and testing of the lunar space station NASA Gateway. To build a full prototype module for Lockheed Martin promised in 2017 in the framework of the joint project NextSTEP (Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships) which the company holds, together with the aerospace Agency. Module plan to test isnapshot, and use to develop new key technologies that will be required for human survival in the near-moon space.

Space station in one form or another, mankind has learned to create in the 70-ies, but they were used only in earth orbit. But it is quite another thing to build a station near the moon than NASA actually planned to do in the near future with the support of other space agencies and private companies. Gateway should be the foothold of humanity into deep space. And the start of its construction is scheduled for early 2020’s.

The company Lockheed Martin undertook to build one of the residential modules of a future lunar orbital station. The basis for its creation was taken by the multi-purpose logistics module Donatello from the program space Shuttle, which was used mainly for delivering cargo to the ISS.

In the 18 months since the beginning of the program the construction module, called Habitat Ground Test Article (HGTA) has undergone significant upgrades. To accelerate and simplify the work to design and create a prototype residential version of the lunar module, the company used a variety of advanced technologies, ranging from virtual and augmented reality and ending with 3D printing technologies. In addition, the development actively used the experience and technology that were obtained when assembling other spacecraft — OSIRIS-Rex (automatic station for the study of asteroid Bennu) and InSight (lander to study Mars).

As pointed out in Lockheed, HTGTA has been upgraded so that it was possible to make maximum use of the entire volume of the original space module Donatello. Thus, the resulting prototype also became multifunctional: it can be used for scientific missions and research, and as a living module for the crew.

At the moment the module is HTGTA Space center. Kennedy in Florida, where the project team NextSTEP at NASA is going to conduct its assessment. March 25 will start an experiment in which a group of astronauts Agency will live and work inside the module. The project aims not only to check its operating convenience, in the experiment, an impromptu crew will test new docking system that will be used for the station Gateway. After completion of the experiment module will be returned to Lockheed Martin for optimization.

“When you design and direct the build of this high level prototype, we were guided by a variety of potential missions in which it can be used. From the outset, the configuration of our module supports the as lunar orbital and ground-based science missions, and commercial operations – all in order to quickly pave the way to the moon,” commented the NextSTEP program Manager at Lockheed Martin Space bill Pratt.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
