More Private Space Missions.

More and more commercial space companies are making headway toward the heavens.

Moon Express has revealed their lunar lander, the MX-1, earlier this month.

The multi-purpose MX-1 (they MUST get a better name), can also be used to carry cargo to near Earth orbit, such as cubesats and the company believes that the vehicle can be used to help clean up space junk.

“We really have tried to create a multifaceted, flexible and scalable spacecraft that can be utilized by other people for a number of different business applications,” Moon Express co-founder and CEO Bob Richards told SPACE.com. The MX-1 has a lunar payload of 132 pounds (60 kg), and more for closer in missions that don’t require as much fuel.

The company plans to have its first mission to the Moon in late 2015 in hopes of winning the Google Lunar X-Prize $20 MM USD first prize for landing a robot on the surface.
