NASA To Announce HLS Contract Winners on April 30

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine will announce the winners of contracts to begin developing Human Landing Systems (HLS) for the Artemis program on Thursday.

A NASA press release issued this afternoon says Bridenstine and three other NASA officials will make the announcement in a media telecon at 1:00 pm ET on April 30.  Audio will be streamed on NASA Live (not NASA TV).

The other participants are Doug Loverro, head of the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD); Lisa Watson-Morgan, HLS program manager; and Tyler Cochran, HLS contracting official.

Yesterday, in his “NASA Weekly Update,” he had said the announcement would be on NASA Television and include a discussion with other senior NASA officials on how human exploration of the Moon connects to the longer-term goal of going to Mars, but the plans apparently have evolved since then.
