NASA Seeking Concept Proposals for Altair Lunar Lander January 28, 2009

Posted by Nick Azer in Altair, NASA.

Today, NASA issued a release seeking concept proposals for their future lunar lander, the Altair.

Specifically, NASA is looking for “concept definition” and “requirements analysis support” for the lander that will carry four astronauts to the Moon “late in the next decade”. 

The proposal process has a pretty basic website with the various documents and parts of the process there in bare-bones presentation, with the best general explanation of the process found here.

Check out this neat official NASA animation from Youtube of the Altair landing at the primary proposed site for a moon base, Shackleton Crater:
