The US is back in the moon.
On Thursday at 13:00 NASA will launch new "Moon Partnerships" with US companies. ET, the space agency said in a blog post. A partnership with a private company is the next step in US long-term research and Moon and Mars exploration, said the space agency.
NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine will prepare a statement that will be live on the agency's website.
The blog post is very worried about the details, but Bridenstine offered some suggestions on Twitter this week saying that the US is moving to the moon "faster than you think."
This news comes just days after NASA landedon the surface of Mars. Already shipped with a solar-powered earth station, an eighth NASA spacecraft that will depart on a planet from Mary's surface.
