President Trump wants U.S. Astronauts to Reach the Farthest Edges of the Solar System One Day

POTUS Donald Trump wants to send astronauts to the lunar surface once more and then he wants them to go to Mars. This is the new change in NASA policy that has been signed in the form of a document by Trump.

Part of the program is the exploration of space alongside the trade partners of the United States. The ultimate objective is to send human beings across the solar system. These astronauts will return to earth with valuable knowledge and materials from such far flung planets as Uranus and Neptune.

The first stage is a manned journey to Mars directly after a return to the moon. Governmental actions will combine with private industrial activities and international efforts to make this dream come true.

This will be the first time American astronauts will be returning to the moon after 1972 for exploratory purposes. President Trump acknowledged the fact that the trip to the moon will be in order to set up camp there and then the United States will look beyond the moon.

What he meant was that Mars was next. He gave a hint regarding other worlds in the solar system which would also be the target of astronauts in the future.

The entire policy was due to the recommendations of the National Space Council which had been set up by Vice President, Mike Pence. Astronauts were also to land on an asteroid.

With President Trump at the helm of the nation, space will be the next great frontier for America. The settlement and complete exploration of outer space is thus a major goal for the United States.

Others who ratified the new policy by signing their names on the document included: NASA astronauts Jack Schmitt, Buzz Aldrin, Peggy Whitson and Christina Koch.
