NASA aims to send a mission to the moon in 2028 – this is the first time , when people have traveled there since 1972.
The space agency said it was "on the verge of achieving more than we had ever achieved before," as President Trump presented a new budget.
The budget includes a new "Lunar Gateway" space station that will fly through the moon by the middle of the 2020s and a budget for a pilot-to-moon mission by 2028
"For the first time in over 10 years, we have money in this budget for returning the moon to people." NASA Administrator Jim Bridgetin said:
"I'm talking about people classified as people compatible with the Gateway that can go forward and back to the moon's surface.
"The moon is the polygon; Mars is the goal of the horizon. "
