CSBR Internship Program Kicks Off!

Posted: June 21, 2019

The 2019 CSBR Internship Program kicked off at Lockheed Martin with over 35 students. Students hail from all over the state of Colorado and include areas like Moffat County, Broomfield, Craig, Lafayette, Durango, Highlands Ranch, and Rifle. They are VERY enthusiastic and hopeful about space and our future. One student noted that “Space is our destiny” and the group agreed!

So far, the interns have had a chance to tour Lockheed Martin, Sierra Nevada Corporation, Ball Aerospace. University of Colorado Boulder was also a destination.  The Students above had their picture taken with the SNC Dream Chaser vehicle as part of their facility tour.  During each visit, they learn about the backgrounds and diverse pathways into the aerospace industry – from traditional engineering, to applied mathematics, to journalism, and international relations. Each pathway can land you in the aerospace ecosystem. It is all part of the what makes the space industry work.

There is one more week left and the students are scheduled to go to Colorado Springs to visit the Catalyst Campus and learn about entrepreneurship, an overview of cyber security, Colorado Air and Spaceport, Boeing, and additional exposure to the larger aerospace ecosystem.

Sierra Nevada Delivers Their Habitat to NASA for Assessment

Posted: June 21, 2019

SNC designed and manufactured the Descent Brake Mechanisms for several NASA missions including Mars 2020 and Curiosity Mars rover mission. SNC is also developing a ground prototype of its LIFE lunar habitat under NASA’s Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships 2 (NextSTEP-2) contract and Gateway concept. The Gateway is an outpost that also supports sustainable lunar operations and long-duration exploration. SNC’s inflatable habitat prototype recently arrived at Johnson Space Center for testing.

NASA to Partner with American Industry to Supply Artemis Moon Missions

Posted: June 21, 2019

In the latest step in sending astronauts to the lunar surface within five years, NASA issued a draft solicitation June 14 to industry seeking comments for a future opportunity for American companies to deliver cargo and other supplies to the Gateway in lunar orbit.

The first logistics service to the orbital outpost is expected to deliver science, cargo and other supplies in support of the agency’s new Artemis lunar exploration program, which includes sending the first woman and the next man to the surface of the Moon by 2024.

Last fall, NASA asked American companies for ideas on how to best supply the Gateway, which will be located in an orbit around the Moon about 250,000 miles from Earth. The Gateway will be a command and service module for missions to the lunar surface and eventually, exploration farther into the solar system. Following up on that initial request for information, today NASA published a draft solicitation for industry comments on its logistics approach, which are due July 10, 2019.

“We’re asking industry to provide a spacecraft to deliver cargo and other supplies to the Gateway. It will dock to the orbital outpost, but will be responsible for generating its own power,” said Marshall Smith, director, human lunar exploration programs at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “We’re using the Moon as a proving ground for Mars to develop the technologies and systems we need for exploration farther into the solar system, so we look forward to seeing how industry responds to our upcoming solicitation, and potentially awarding multiple contracts for this lunar service.”

This latest call is mirroring similar cargo resupply services the agency pioneered with industry closer to home. NASA led the way for commercialization of low-Earth orbit, and is now providing new opportunities for private companies in deep space.
