Baku, March 13, AZERTAC

Japan is set to build a habitation module for astronauts in a new space station that will orbit the Moon.

US space agency NASA, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, or JAXA, the European Space Agency, or ESA, and others plan to build the space station, called Gateway, by 2026.

NASA on Monday unveiled the assignments given to each participating country regarding the construction of the space station, which has 10 major components.

JAXA and ESA will build an international habitation module. JAXA will also work with NASA to develop cargo modules to deliver supplies to the lunar outpost.

NASA's draft budget for fiscal 2020 has allocated about 360 million dollars to developing new space craft and rockets.
