There are currently five awarded Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) missions to the lunar
surface in the next three years. Intuitive Machines (IM) has two of the missions and both will be
launched by SpaceX.

“Signing with SpaceX for our IM-2 Polar Mission, our second scheduled lunar landing, is more than
affordable quality lunar transport,” said IM President and CEO, Steve Altemus. “Launching Nova-C
on a rocket with a proven record of reliability and outstanding value is an assurance to NASA and
our commercial payload customers that IM is dedicated to sticking the landing in back-to-back
Moon missions.”

NASA awarded IM the company’s second
payload delivery contract award under NASA’s
Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS)
initiative, October 16, 2020. IM has packaged
the CLPS payload with two other high profile
NASA technology payloads into IM-2 Polar

“Our Lunar Payload and Data Service (LPDS)
program matures with each awarded mission
to the Moon,” said Altemus. “That maturity is
essential for creating a reliable and repeatable
lunar landing service that brings us closer to
sustained lunar exploration and development.”

IM-2 Polar Mission will launch on a Falcon 9
rocket no earlier than 2022.

“We’re honored to launch Intuitive Machines’ important missions to the lunar surface,” said SpaceX
Vice President of Commercial Sales Tom Ochinero. “These missions, in partnership with NASA, will
help further the goal of extending humanity’s reach beyond Earth.”
