Trump administration wants Americans back on moon by 2024

Trump administration wants Americans back on moon by 2024

Pence said that no only with the United States go to the moon, we will establish a permanent base there.

Pence, speaking at a Huntsville, Ala., meeting of the National Space Council, said the original 2028 target date was "just not good enough".

Pence criticized the recent news that the first launch of NASA's new big rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS), which is managed at Marshall, will be delayed by yet another year, to 2021.

This summer will mark the 50-year anniversary of America's first moon landing.

"I appreciate Vice President Mike Pence for choosing the U.S. Space & Rocket Center for today's meeting of the National Space Council!" Today, several decades later, Vice President Mike Pence wants NASA to put astronauts back on the moon within five years. As Pence said, should things prove hard, the president plans to "change the organisation, not the mission". The last Apollo lunar mission, Apollo 17, took place in 1972. NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine responded in a post on Twitter, saying, "Challenge accepted".

Pence is the chairman of the National Space Council.

However, he expressed confidence that the SLS, or Space Launch System, would be ready for the job.

American astronauts will return to the Moon within five years-or else.

The vice president instructed Nasa to aim to land on the moon's south pole, where considerable amounts of ice could be used for drinking and making rocket fuel. Recently, the Chinese space programme landed a probe on the far side of the moon for the first time.

The proposed Space Force, which was part of the Trump administration's 2020 defense budget request to Congress, will fall under the Air Force and have a relationship akin to the US Marine Corps' relationship to the Department of the Navy. According to NASA, "the Mars Helicopter, a small, autonomous rotorcraft, will travel with the agency's Mars 2020 rover mission, now scheduled to launch in July 2020, demonstrate the viability and potential of heavier-than-air vehicles on the Red Planet". "We are only doing what is necessary to get to first launch", he stated.

He said the USA was engaged in a present-day "space race" under Trump, this time against China, just as the country was in the 1960s under President John F. Kennedy against the Soviet Union.

In order to get astronauts on the moon by 2024, Mr Bridenstine said the space agency's new megarocket will be needed, but its development and pace will need to be faster. "And then we will use what we learn on the Moon to take the next giant leap - sending astronauts to Mars", Bridenstine said in a statement. Will it happen this time, or become just another footnote in space exploration history?
