NASA determines when to live on the moon

The head of the US agency's Orion lunar spacecraft program, Howard Hu, announced today, Monday, that astronauts could be active on the moon for periods before 2030, with possibilities to live there.

"We will send astronauts, and they will live on the surface of the moon and practice science," Hu said in an interview with the BBC, noting that "with the continuation of activity in the field of space, and amid expectations of further achievement of goals in this field, it seems that the astronauts They will live and work on the moon by 2030."

And he talked about the Artemis rocket, which "is 98 meters high, and was launched from launch pad 39B at the Kennedy Space Center, on November 16, after a series of delays due to technical faults and hurricanes." "The Artemis 1 mission program is, in fact, a stepping stone towards sending regular crews to the moon for longer stays," Hu said.

"It's the first step we're taking for long-term deep space exploration, not just for the United States but for the world," he added.

And he added, "We will return to the moon. We are working towards a sustainable program and this is the means that will carry the people who will return us to the moon again."

As base camp develops, "the goal is to allow the crew to stay on the lunar surface for up to two months at a time."
