  • The United States is to Ratify a Private Moon Mission Soon

The United States of America is to ratify a private moon mission soon.

This is a first. The United States is all set to give the go ahead signal to the first commercial moon mission, according to WSJ. The spacecraft reserved for this mission will reach way beyond the earth’s orbit.

The private space agency responsible for this has a co-founder who is an Indian tycoon. Titled the Moon Express, the venture was the brainchild of Naveen Jain.

By the time 2017 rolls in, a 9 kg package would be delivered to the moon’s surface by this man’s space setup. His company is almost raring to go and all it needs is the approval of the US government. 

This would thus mark a novel mission plan where the aim is profiteering. The whole legal paperwork has yet to reach completion. It is to make sure that all the laws and by-laws are followed to the letter and nothing goes wrong.

As for the actual green light signal, it could be months away from now. Besides space tourism, asteroid mining could become the order of the day thanks to this scheme of things. 

The CEO of Moon Express spoke of how his agency had been a pathfinder out of sheer necessity. That was because up until the present moment, this was the preserve of governmental agencies.

The commercial moon mission still has many stumbling blocks which lie in its way. It is not exactly viable just yet. For one thing, the rocket it plans to employ for its missions, has not yet even flown into outer space.

Founded in 2010, the company is in the process of manufacturing creative, agile and reliable robotic spacecraft that will make space exploration a cinch. Also the mysterious aspect that the moon, which is earth’s satellite, holds in the popular imagination will be assuaged via this venture. 

The US government and the Indian entrepreneur are all set to make history. Just hammering out the details of the project was such an extremely backbreaking process.

Even a few months ago, this ratification by the US government would have been thought to be nothing more than miraculous. Yet today there is proof of the fact that miracles do happen after all.

What was impossible has become possible thanks to the efforts of various deal makers who broke the deadlock which was set in place by the deal breakers.
