Our Future

"Across the sea of space, the stars are other suns." — Carl Sagan

Apollo 11 marked a new era in exploration. Today, Northrop Grumman is developing the next generation of space exploration technologies. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has already discovered new exoplanets and supernovae, while the soon-to-launch James Webb Space Telescope will study every phase in the history of our universe — from the Big Bang to the formation of life-supporting solar systems.

From the Sea of Tranquility to the origins of the universe, we're pushing the boundaries of space exploration. Discover your future with Northrop Grumman.
