The Gateway Bay lies at the core of the Hub. Think of the Hub’s Bay as akin to the deck of an aircraft carrier – in vacuum. Designed to facilitate transfers between Earth shuttles and lunar craft, this vital component of the Gateway will become operational before LGA Spin-Up. The design of The Bay will utilize 5 gates on each deck: two gates on each side with one pop up gate near the center for longer craft such as Reaction Engines, Skylon.
