NASA announces! Here’s the date to return to the Moon

One male and one female astronaut will be sent to the lunar surface in 2024 under the program called “Artemis,” NASA said in a statement.

The US aerospace agency (NASA) plans to send two astronauts, one female, to the moon in 2024.

One male and one female astronaut will be sent to the lunar surface in 2024 under the program called “Artemis,” NASA said in a statement.


NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine noted that $ 28 billion is needed for the Artemis program, which is intended to land on the Moon four years later.

The astronauts are scheduled to travel in a capsule called Orion, which will be launched with the new powerful rocket SLS.


NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, who informed reporters via telephone, said that astronauts scheduled to land with the capsule, which will be sent with the rocket to be launched under the program called” Artemis”, will stay on the moon for a week.

The NASA administrator said the astronauts would land at the South Pole, adding that the areas where the Apollo landings in the equatorial region of the moon between 1969 and 1972 were not part of the plan.


Three separate projects are in the race to develop the spacecraft that will land on the moon. The first is owned by Blue Origin, whose founder is Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s chief executive. Blue Origin’s partners in this project are LockheedMartin,NorthropGrummanveDraper. The other two are being run by Elon Musk’s SpaceX company and another US company, Dynetics.


It’s been 51 years since Man first set foot on the Moon. The stones of the path, which astronaut Neil Armstrong portrayed as “small for a man but big for humanity,” were laid in the shadow of a power struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union (USSR).

White House interview minutes released by the US aerospace agency (NASA) show that the goal of organizing the first manned expedition to the Moon is the goal of US President John F. Kennedy. It reveals that in the eyes of the American administration, led by Kennedy, Space was seen more as a front for Cold War rivalry than as a goal of understanding it for scientific purposes.

The dialogues between Kennedy and NASA Director James Webb at the November 21, 1962 meeting where NASA’s budget goals were discussed indicate that the political will of the era had different priorities in space than the scientific community.


According to the minutes, at one point in the interview, Kennedy asked Webb, “Do you think this program (The Apollo program/NASA’s manned lunar mission) is the agency’s top priority?”when asked, the NASA director said,” No, sir, I think it’s one of the top priority programs.”he responded by saying.

Webb noted that space travel is only possible with a better understanding of space, for which scientific research in different disciplines is needed, and this should be the priority of the institution.

Objecting to Webb’s statement, Kennedy said: “Jim, I think that (going to the Moon) is the top priority. There may be six-month, nine-month disruptions to other (scientific) programs, which have no strategic consequences, but this is important for political reasons, for international political reasons. Whether we like it or not, this is a race., “he said.

Arguing that the Soviet Union sees the space race as a test of the political systems of both sides, Kennedy said: “everything we do should be focused on going to the Moon before the Russians.”he made his assessment.


Kennedy stressed that if the lunar mission is not made a first priority, it will not be possible to convince the public of NASA’s large-scale budget spending.:

“This (lunar mission) should be NASA’s top priority program, and the U.S. government’s top priority after Defense. That should be our approach, we should be open about it. Otherwise, there’s no point in spending so much money because I’m not that interested in space. I think it’s a good thing to have information, and we’re ready to allocate serious resources, but we’re talking about a fantastic spending that will shake up the entire budget and domestic spending. The only way to legitimize it is to say, ‘we want to beat them, we’ve come a few years behind, but God willing, we’ve passed them.’ say.”
Kennedy, who stood up to leave the room in the middle of the meeting, left the meeting by asking Webb and his aides to pass him a written note in which they evaluated all NASA’s science programs in terms of the benefit they would provide for the lunar mission and arranged budget proposals accordingly.

When Kennedy held the aforementioned meeting with NASA officials, he was consistently lagging behind his rival as he passed key milestones in the U.S. space race. At that time, the Soviet Union sent the first satellite into space and conducted the first manned space expedition.
