In our first SpaceQ podcast episode of our annual Winter Series we’re featuring a Future In-Space Operations teleconference on Maxar’s Power and Propulsion Element for the Lunar Gateway.

Our annual Winter Series podcast special runs for three weeks during the holidays and features important news updates or talks on topics we think you’ll find interesting from other creators. Our regular interviews will resume on January 14th.

In this episode Scott Tilley and Ty Lee of Maxar Technologies discuss a critical Lunar Gateway technology, the Power and Propulsion Element, being developed for NASA.

The Power and Propulsion Element is the first element in NASA’s Lunar orbiting Gateway which will form the basis of a sustainable human return to the moon and beyond. It’s an important program for Maxar which could lead to years of sales to both NASA and potential future commercial customers. The program is currently in Preliminary Design Phase with the first demonstration element to be launched in 2022.
