A new declaration from the Trump administration will order NASA to send American astronauts back to the moon with the goal of getting to Mars.
A spokesman for the Trump administration said "Space Policy Directive 1" will order NASA to lead a program that sends "American astronauts back to the moon, and eventually Mars."
The announcement isn't all that surprising. In October, Vice President Mike Pence told the National Space Council that the Trump administration planned to return to the moon. And when the federal government passed NASA's $19.5 billion budget for the upcoming fiscal year, it prioritized sending a manned space mission to Mars by 2033.
