The Deep Space Gateway Alpha is a concept for the first orbital space station not flying above Earth. Its first purpose is to relay crewmembers and equipment between the Moon and Earth. The station is modular and thus expandable. It includes 3 docking ports, a refueling system, a cargo bay, a communications relay for both short and long range communications, a command pod, crew quarters, and a laboratory. Like any decent space station, life support systems are integrated to recycle all the waste produced by the astronauts and their daily operations. The electricity is generated from sunlight with solar panels.
