We Open Access to the Moon for the Progress of Humanity

Intuitive Machines is an American company headquartered in Houston, Texas. It was founded in 2013 by Stephen Altemus, Kam Ghaffarian, and Tim Crain. Intuitive Machines is completing its lunar program which will provide lunar surface access, lunar orbit delivery, and communications at lunar distance.

As humans, we must inspire and be inspired, whether, in pursuit of a medical breakthrough or exploring our solar system, we are endlessly drawn to the progress of humanity. Less than a decade ago, Intuitive Machines was an idea, written on a napkin, to solve humanity’s greatest challenges. Now, we are extending our lead in the development of lunar space, and we are inspired by where the next decade and beyond will take us. 


Intuitive Machines’ Lunar Payload Delivery Services (LPDS) program opens access to the Moon for the progress of humanity. NASA selected our LPDS program for three lunar missions which will send the first American spacecraft to the surface of the Moon since the Apollo Program and send the first spacecraft ever to reach the lunar south pole. Intuitive Machines is one of NASA’s contractors as part of the agency’s Commercial Lunar Payload Delivery Services (CLPS) initiative.
