Next Big Futurist has been awarded the prestigious inaugural award for its work on space exploration.
The awards ceremony was held at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.
The prestigious accolade honors a project to design and build a lunar lander, or Lunar Orbiter, which would land on the Moon for the first time.
The $2.8 billion project would launch in 2019.
The program is one of a number of NASA initiatives aimed at creating a human lunar mission, and is the first to launch a spacecraft to the lunar surface.
The award will go to The Boeing Company.
The Boeing Lunar Orbiters spacecraft would fly from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on the Florida coast to the South Pole, where it would deploy a Lunar Surface Command and Control System (LSCS) on the surface of the Moon.
The LSCS would provide communications and data links to the ground station for the lander.
The lander would use the Lunar Orbit Engine (LEO) from Boeing, which is designed to fly missions to the surface in about two weeks.
The spacecraft would then rendezvous with the surface and perform a series of orbital maneuvers.
The lander’s orbit would then be determined by an orbital trajectory determined by the LSCA, the LEO, and the Lunar Propellant Transfer Vehicle (LPTV).
The LSC is a spacecraft that can carry a payload, such as a payload bay or solar panels, on top of it.
The LPTV, meanwhile, carries the spacecraft’s propellant tanks to the moon for use.
The first LSC was launched in 2007 and the LPTB, a second LSC, was launched last year.
The 2018 LSC mission was called the LCROSS mission, which was named after the American space agency’s mission commander, Neil Armstrong.
The 2018 LCROS mission was the LRS-16 mission, the name given to the second LSR mission, launched in May 2020.
The next three missions to launch to the International Space Station are scheduled for 2021, 2022, and 2023.
The last of these missions, the Space Launch System (SLS), is scheduled for launch in 2022.
The announcement of the winners was made at the National Air & Space Museum.
