Lockheed Martin has revealed its crewed lunar lander concept. The reusable lander aligns with NASA's lunar Gateway and future Mars missions.

It has incorporated technologies and systems from NASA's Orion spacecraft. The lander can carry four people and 2,000 lbs of cargo to the lunar surface.

It can spend up to two weeks on the lunar surface before heading back to the gateway. The new Lander could help pave the way for future human missions to mars, said Lockheed Martin.
