With NASA headed back to the Moon, they are working on a long list of things that need to be completed prior to any mission. Rather than do it all themselves, the agency is working with private companies in different ways including developing a Human Landing System. This is a vital piece of technology that helps transport humans from the surface of the Moon, up to the Gateway space station.
Blue Origin a part of the National Team, designed and developed a human landing system for future missions to the Moon apart of Artemis.
