The U.S. vice president Pence has given a challenge to NASA to send astronauts to the south pole of the moon by 2024 to explore the space again, at the National Space Council meeting. The new mission to the moon is going to be a big project and with the help of international relationships, The U.S. will be able to expand its space boundaries which will also open some new opportunities for the next generation engineers and scientists in the urge to build a new space economy.
If NASA is to spearhead space exploration, the agency should Demonstrate preeminence in space by swiftly expanding humanity into the solar system, incorporating public-private-academic partnerships and other means that expand American involvement in space exploration and utilization. Establish its space science, exploration, and aerospace technology research as second to none. Define a clear strategic vision for the development and acceleration of aerospace technologies and knowledge transfer to American firms to spur economic growth and create real jobs at home. Support American companies in pursuing the vast economic resources of space and development of a sustainable space economy that supports science and exploration missions.
Streamline agency operations and maintain a laser focus on missions that maximize the taxpayer’s investment in space. The goals are all set in President Donald Trump’s Space Policy Directive 1 as NASA has to now, “lead an innovative and sustainable program of exploration with commercial and international partners to enable human expansion across the solar system and to bring back to Earth new knowledge and opportunities.” and to do get all the data, NASA has to have the sufficient resources by which they can get the results they desire. NASA has chosen about 12 payloads which includes science and technology stuff which will be sent on Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) in March.Tags: moon, NASA, Pence, U.S.
