In fact, Falcon 9 helped launch Israel's Beresheet spacecraft earlier this year, but the lander crashed on the moon.

Intuitive Machines, which focus on autonomous system research, are expected to carry their Nova-C lander to the moon to help NASA complete its work.

SpaceX is one of several companies chosen by NASA for its commercial payload service plan for the moon, with a view to achieving the goal of manned return to the moon by 2024.

Before that, however, NASA needed to launch more robots to the moon to conduct scientific experiments and test new technologies.


Intuitive Machines said: Nova-C can deliver at least 220 pounds (100 kilograms) of material to the lunar surface. The company is ready to help NASA complete five shipments and send back scientific experimental data to Earth in two weeks.

Finally, Intuitive Machines plans to carry some payloads from other customers during the 2021 mission. Customers in need can contact the company as soon as possible.
