The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is going to “before the end of the decade” to build a base on the Moon for long-term residence and work of astronaut scientists.
This was reported by foreign media, citing a statement by Howard Hu, head of the Orion space program.
Howard Hu told reporters:
Of course, in this decade, our people will be able to live there for a long time, depending on the length of their stay on the surface. They will have dwellings, they will have rovers on the surface. We are going to send people to the moon, they will live and do science.
Recall that the giant rocket with the Orion spacecraft launched on November 16, 2022 from Cape Canaveral in Florida after a series of delays due to technical failures and hurricanes. Now the rocket is at a distance of about 19 thousand km from the moon.
