Earlier this month, vice president mike Pence made nasa new goal clear: the space agency is tasked with sending humans to the surface of the Moon once more, this time to make a foundation for deep space missions. tho’ it’s unclear exactly how the administration plans to pull this off, the new mission could be a big modification for NASA, that has been focused on going to Mars without a return to the lunar surface.
But while NASA is shifting its focus, everybody else has also been wanting to the Moon for some time now. numerous international state agencies have ambitions to send either spacecraft or humans to the Moon’s surface, and various us space firms see the Moon as the way to make money. If NASA is searching for help to tug off its lunar ambitions — that it likely can need — then there are lots of governments and companies who may be eager to pitch in.
