"That's the mandate we've been given by President Donald Trump and a supportive bipartisan Congress", he writes at Ozy. Jim Bridenstine, NASA's administrator confirmed this news, and he made it clear that the primary aim of this upcoming mission is not just collecting samples and returning to earth, but to make humans stay on earth's one and only natural satellite.

"For the moon, we'd like to return humans in the late 2020s", Clarke said.

Across the Atlantic, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine commented on US plans for a lunar mission posted on the Ozy news outlet yesterday.

"I want to be clear - that is not our vision". The new NASA challenge is following the directive signed by President Donald Trump on December 11 instructing NASA to send U.S. astronauts to the Moon for the first time since the Apollo 17 mission 45 years ago.

Through multi-phased lunar exploration partnerships, NASA is asking American companies to study the best approach to landing astronauts on the Moon and start the development as quickly as possible with current and future anticipated technologies.

"That starts with the Gateway - a lunar orbiting outpost created to ensure the safe transit of astronauts to the lunar surface and back home again".

The space agency has plans to try out new human-class landers on the Moon, starting 2024, with a goal for a manned mission in 2028.

When NASA again sends humans to the Moon, the surface will be buzzing with new research and robotic activity, and there will be more opportunities for discovery than ever before. The construction of the first Russian lunar base is set to begin in 2034 and continue in 2035. After all, the last time humans visited it was 1972. "But unlike Apollo, this time we're going to the moon to stay, and from there we'll take the next giant leap in deep space exploration", added Bridenstine.
