Lockheed Martin's Lunar lander concept

American aerospace, advanced technologies and defense company Lockheed Martin has proposed a 62-ton Lunar lander to bring 4 astronauts from NASA's planned Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway in near-rectilinear halo orbit to the surface of the Moon. The lander would be capable to support those astronauts on the surface for up to 14 days.

A year ago Lockheed Martin also proposed its concept for a 4-person Martian lander.

Official: updated design of SpaceX's Big Falcon Ship and big announcement on September 17

SpaceX has posted image featuring an updated design of the 2nd stage of Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) - the Big Falcon Ship (BFS) - and informed that on Monday, September 17 at 18:00 PT there will be an announcement of the first Lunar BFR mission with a private passenger flying around the Moon. Full message from SpaceX here:
"SpaceX has signed the world’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard our BFR launch vehicle - an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space. Only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history. No one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972. Find out who’s flying and why on Monday, September 17 at 6pm PT."
Evolution of the BFR design:
With every iteration the SpaceX "Mars rocket" looks more and more like your stereotypical rocket from the 1950s :)
