In addition, the Director of NASA said that the mission to the moon prepares diligently and thoroughly, not just to visit the satellite once, but stay there and increase the human presence.
“The next mission to the moon we are not going to leave flags and footprints and not return for another 50 years. This time we’re going to stay there, and so we need commercial and international partners. We need missiles that could be used multiple times, as well as any element necessary to create the necessary infrastructure,” – said Breidenstein.
Former chief scientific officer of the Department Ellen Stofan interviewed on the podcast, Vox said that the landing of humans on the Red planet could take place in the next five years.
According to her, despite the fact that the current goal of NASA is to send humans to Mars in the 2030’s, the Agency can achieve this result much earlier. According to Stofan, professionals could do it in the next five years if you tried. Scientist noted that quick time can become possible if the United States “spend money” on this event.
