The return to the moon, for NASA, has been postponed by at least a year: we have to wait until 2025. The US agency has announced the postponement of the program with respect to the deadline set for 2024 by Donald Trump, at the time president of the United States. All postponed to 2025, explained Bill Nelson, the former Florida senator who was selected to lead NASA by President Joe Biden earlier this year.
“We have lost nearly seven months in litigation and this will likely postpone the first human moon landing to at least 2025,” Nelson said, adding that NASA will need to have more in-depth contact with SpaceX – Elon Musk’s ‘creature’ chosen by NASA in April for building a lander – to define a precise timetable. “After analyzing the situation for 6 months,” he added, “it is clear that the agency will have to make serious changes to ensure the long-term success of the program.”
” This day in 1967 was the first launch of the Saturn V rocket that later launched humans to the Moon. This winter, we’ll launch the NASA SLS rocket in the uncrewed Artemis I mission, to prepare for future astronaut missions…Our uncrewed Artemis I mission will pave the way for future missions with crew, launch is targeted for February 2022,” writes NASA on its social media timeline.
