Nine & # 39; firms will compete for contracts to deliver experiments in science and technology to the lunar surface, and NASA enable companies work details & # 39; arrival there.
The tests will help accelerate progress towards long-term scientific study and scientific exploration of the Moon and & # 39; Mars.
Before humans can travel with & # 39; regularly into space, the agency needs to better understand the requirements & # 39; navigation, landing and survival
The news comes & # 39; only three days after the nuclear Insight NASA dropped on Mars, only the eighth time ship[Temmil-vjaġġkważita'seven'xhur480miljunkilometrumidWorld[Hascompletedthenearlyseven-month480-million-kilometrejourneyfromEarth[temmil-vjaġġkważita'seba'xhur480miljunkilometrumid-Dinja[hascompletedthenearlyseven-month480-million-kilometrejourneyfromEarth

The artery & # 39; $ 993 million, which appears in & # 39; good shape, will soon begin to check its robotic arm to view a & # 39; 360 degrees, and use its earthquake sensors on the Martian surface.
The NASA engineers plan to start working with a robotic arm soon, but are proceeding with & # 39; caution.
The branch has five mechanical fingers to help it remove and put its two instruments on the Martian soil in the next few months.
"Gently remove all my tension pent up, start by removing my grapple, as they show before and after," said the Twitter account of NASA Insight.
"As long as I am not willing to extend my arm, with my camera angles are the same."
