NASA Glenn technology enabled Apollo and will propel future missions.
Advancements made by researchers in Cleveland, Ohio such as propulsion technology and liquid hydrogen-liquid oxygen propellant, helped make the Apollo mission possible. Today, NASA Glenn Research Center builds on this legacy as it develops solar electric propulsion systems that will propel the Gateway in orbit around the Moon. Gateway – a temporary home and office for astronauts – enables them to access the entire surface of the Moon.
