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.

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