The Bay

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.

Gates: 5 per Deck, 10 Total
Airlocks: 8 Large Cargo Airlocks
Bay Pads: 14 Active Bay Pads (to move craft around)
Bay Dimensions: 121m Wide, 33m Tall, 76m Deep
Unpressurized Volume: 278160 m3
