Lunar Access

Fifty years after humanity first landed on the Moon, Intuitive Machines is proud to offer Lunar Access Services to Earth's nearest neighbor. Our Lunar Access Services provide a reliable and affordable means for governments to explore, companies to develop, and individuals to place an object in cislunar space or on the lunar surface.

RIDESHARE

Getting to space should be easy and custom-tailored to fit your needs. Our lunar transfer orbit delivery services can accommodate up to 1000 kg of payload and deliver customers into a myriad of high-energy orbits. We launch payloads for deployment after launch vehicle separation and from the steadfast platform of our landers in lunar orbit.

We meet the demands of science and technology by providing extreme lunar mobility with µNova (Micro Nova) Hopper. µNova is a propulsive drone that deploys off of a Nova-C lander and hops across the lunar surface on our IM-2 mission. The µNova Hopper can accommodate up to 1 kg of science payloads and expand the exploration footprint to 25 km from the initial landing location. µNova can also hop into and out of permanently shaded regions (PSR), providing a first look into undiscovered areas that may provide the critical science needed to sustain a human presence on the Moon.

Decades for a single moment

Our landers are based on a decade's worth of engineering development, first as NASA's Project M, then as Project Morpheus. IM is staffed by an exceptional team with a deep understanding of spaceflight hardware and operations. By working with one of our Payload Integration Managers, you can focus on your mission objectives while our team works on the details of mission execution.

 

We've made every effort to take the complexity and cost out of getting to the Moon. Our full service, from the lander to rideshare, to the processing facility, to the ground support systems, has been designed to integrate your payload and provide Lunar Access Services as smooth and affordable as possible. Our services include a dedicated launch vehicle, deployment in cislunar space, short transit times to the lunar surface (typically six days), and a precision landing capability to ensure you land when and where you want.

 

Welcome to the next step in space exploration - the Moon is now within your reach.
