Not sure where this article comes from originally, (maybe here) but it contradicts the other post I made earlier in this thread about not building a base on the surface but building a space station in space on the other side of the Moon. So, now we really dont know what they want to do as there is so much conflicting information.

Back in May 2019 this was reported and supposedly confirmed by NASA.

Key points in Nasa's Moon base plans. Starting with an unmanned rover in 2023, the space agency is expected to land people on the Moon in 2024.

NASA will then fire manned missions to Earth's neighbor every year between 2024 and 2028, according to the documents, which were obtained by Arstechnica.
Speaking to The Sun, a NASA spokeswoman confirmed the documents are real and revealed the plans were briefed today during a public session of the Science Committee to the NASA Advisory Council (NAC).

They show a decade-long program that culminates with a permanent lunar base, which NASA will begin building in 2028. These official NASA Moon plans were supposedly circulated to staff last week. NASA wants to stick a robotic rover on the Moon in 2023. It could look something like the £2billion Curiosity Mars rover.

I contend if you asked every American which they'd rather have if they had to spend $69 Gillion, 99% would rather eliminate the common cold than go to the Moon OR Mars.

Study suggests much more water on the moon than thought

It would be more productive to send a nuclear-powered rover to explore the ice-trap craters. That's a potentially useful resource we should be exploring to see how readily it can be extracted. Plutonium-powered vehicles are one thing that NASA can build that likely would not be readily available to most commercial enterprises.

Maybe Trump is trying to avoid a situation where NASA is asked about those pesky artificial structures said to be on the moon?!!

If we go back, you know people are going to be asking about them again.
