The Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway will give us a strategic presence in cislunar

The B330 is a standalone commercial space station that can operate in Low Earth Orbit, cislunar
space and beyond.
While the deep space gateway is still in concept formulation, NASA is pleased to see growing international interest in moving into cislunar
space as the next step for advancing human space exploration," NASA administrator said in a statement.
the gateway is part of the Journey to Mars initiative by NASA, and the Space agency says it will be a small space station that orbits the moon in the cislunar
space, and be used as a transportation node for expeditions to Mars.
In this environment it is necessary to make the distinction between geospace (the region of space closest to the Earth), cislunar
space (the region extending beyond Earth to the Moon), interplanetary space (the space around the Sun and planets of the solar system), interstellar space (the physical space within a galaxy), and intergalactic space (the physical space between galaxies).
The advantage of the moon village over other plans such as cislunar
activities, which involve space stations orbiting the moon, Woerner maintains, is that it wouldn't need a huge amount of funding at the beginning.
would send a few Orion missions into cislunar
space to fly formation with a boulder that the ARM may or may not bring back robotically.
Primarily operating in cislunar
space--the volume of space around the moon featuring multiple possible stable staging orbits for future deep space missions--NASA will advance and validate capabilities required for humans to live and work at distances much farther away from our home planet, such as at Mars.
But in contrast to the "flags and footprints" model, framing space strategy in terms of capabilities would bring benefits to Earth and prepare us to move outward to the rest of the solar system by first developing our own back yard--the Earth-Moon system, also known as cislunar
The Lunar Workshops include events on subjects as diverse as Scientific Opportunities in CisLunar
Space (SOCS), Lunar Superconductor Applications (LSA) and LunarCubes (LCW).
First of all, with the conclusion of the moon race, governments have had little incentive to push further with manned exploration, given the enormous cost and risk of sending humans into cislunar
