Boeing lunar lander illustration (Boeing) Boeing announced Tuesday it's proposing a lunar lander for NASA that could be launched on the Space Launch System. The company's "Fewest Steps to the Moon" involves launching an integrated lander on an SLS Block 1B, which could go from lunar orbit to the surface and back without the need for an additional transfer stage. The company says its approach minimizes the number of "critical events," like launches and dockings, compared to alternatives where lunar lander modules are launched individually and aggregated at the lunar Gateway. Tuesday was the deadline for companies to submit human lunar lander proposals to NASA.
