History

The STS shuttles represented a technological turning point for the industrial expansion on the Moon. Initiated in September 2085, the programme contributed significantly to accelerating the ambitious SkyKover satellite implementation project. The hybrid space freighter and leisure cruiser solution substantially improved the payback per launch. The economic management of the Copernicus Programme is carried out by the MOONext Consortium, formed by the largest aerospace technology manufacturers from the five continents and chaired by the United Nations Security Council.
