NASA Told To Return To The Moon By 2024

According to Geek.com, NASA has been instructed to put American astronauts on the Moon within five years.

Speaking at this week’s meeting of the National Space Council, Vice President Mike Pence demanded NASA take the US back to the moon.

The United States has successfully manned many missions to the Moon, the last departing the lunar surface in December 1972.

In the nearly 50 years since, NASA has studied Mars, Saturn, and Pluto.
