The man returns to the Moon: inside modules designed by an Italian company for ‘colonizing’ it

Aiming for Mars through the Moon, with the possibility of colonization. This is the stated goal of the Lunar Gateway project, involving NASA and ESA in the mission that will effectively return humans to the Moon. Fifty-four years after the Apollo 11 landing on the lunar surface, the scientific world is buzzing with the imminent prospect of human presence on the Moon and, subsequently, Mars. Once again, making this significant achievement possible is Thales Alenia, Europe’s largest producer of satellites and space modules. We visited their facility in Turin where the construction of Halo, a 3-meter-diameter module that will house four astronauts participating in the lunar mission by the end of 2025, is nearing completion.
