The United States sent six missions to the moon, including Apollo 11, from 1969 to 1972. Elections are in the United States on November 3 this year. President Donald Trump has made this project one of his priorities. For this, the amount passed by Congress (US Parliament) will be included in the financial years between 2021-24.
NASA is concerned about the budget
During a media briefing by phone, NASA chief Jim Brydenstein said there is a kind of risk to this amount, as the country has elections. If Congress first approves 2.2 billion by December, it will be easier to work on the 2024 mission.
The mission will be landed at the South Pole
“The mission will land at the moon’s south pole. Nothing more will be said about this right now,” Brydenstein said. On July 22, 2019, India successfully launched the lunar mission Chandrayaan-2, it was supposed to land at the South Pole, but it was not successful.
America expected the Apollo-11 crash
On July 20, 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong landed on the lunar surface of Edwin Aldrin. Indeed, America had doubts about the success of this mission. A message of condolence was also prepared in the name of ‘In the Event of Moon Disaster’ at the suggestion of the then President Nixon. However, the mission was successful and the speech was never read. Apollo 11 was followed by 5 manned missions to the moon, the last being in 1972.
