NASA, White House want an extra $1.6 bn to keep 2024 lunar hopes alive

NASA and the White House are expected to ask Congress for an extra $1.6 billion in next year’s budget to accelerate human missions to the Moon. The space agency is requesting these funds in addition to the $21 billion budget that the president already requested for NASA. The additional funds are meant to help NASA meet the challenge of sending astronauts to the Moon within the next five years.

There are zero benefits from going back to the moon, use that money on unnamed exploration, much more bang for the buck. Trump does love living in the past, another sign of his senility.

I think California has a couple billion $ they owe the federal government for a defunct train that can be contributed.

I don't want to sound like a looney but it's stuff like this that fuel the 'we never went to the moon' conspiracy... why not just go back? how is this such a big deal? why is it SO hard to do it almost 50 years later?.

This has nothing whatsoever to do with the moon and everything to do with a hostile bisexual takeover, and I'm sick of it.
