KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FL – NASA has chosen Northrop Grumman to provide the habitation module for the Gateway lunar orbiting station since they have the best chance
of meeting the agency’s accelerated tight timeline to achieve a human landing by 2024 based on the successful work accomplished to date with the Cygnus
resupply module for the International Space Station.

Ken will be onsite at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station for live reporting of the SpaceX AMOS-17 mission launch.
