Canada is going to join the US on the first crewed mission to the moon since the Apollo missions. Industry Minister Navdeep Bains unveiled the new Gateway Treaty between Ottawa and Washington, which formalizes Canada’s involvement in the effort to build a new international space station known as the Lunar Gateway. The treaty includes a commitment to having a Canadian aboard on a manned fly-by of the moon in 2023 and for Canada to contribute a new robotic arm to help with construction of the station.
