Astrobotic CEO John Thornton said in a statement that Hundreds of kilograms will fly on board the new mission.
"The NASA Artemis program is a major effort to establish a U.S. presence at the lunar south pole, " said John Thornton.
"At the same time, international customers are also lining up plans to pioneer new science, exploration and commercial activities within this region as well."
