NASA has awarded a contract to Colorado-based Lunar Outpost and three other firms to collect lunar rocks after the landing of a lander to the moon's south pole in 2023. NASA will pay $1 to the Lunar Outpost for collecting rocks to retrieve lunar regolith. Lunar Outpost said that the contract is symbolic of its new incentive and will "exponentially increase the potential of future missions."
