  • This program is ambitious. It coincide with the creation of the US Military Space force. Trump said yesterday we must look to the stars for they are the next frontier.

    America is sending back humans to the moon. This is phase 1 of the Artemis project. Phase 2 is to establish PERMANENT Human presence on the moon. 3rd phase is to send humans to Mars.

    We are seeing the first step of many that will lead to human space travel and establishment of human colonies on the moon and then Mars. In other words human settlement on the moon and the other planets in our solar system.

    This is the Artemis project Trump was talking about. The goal is to put humans back on the moon by 2024.

    With this Trumps legacy is secured. I won't be surprised if future settlements on the moon or mars are named after him.
  • According to the head of NASA, it is a method to spend at least $20 billion to $30 billion over the next five years to do something we did in 1969.

    Earlier this year, in June, Bridenstine told CNN that returning astronauts to the moon by 2024 could cost between $20 billion and $30 billion, although that number was not final. Bridenstine has also disputed reports that the cost of Artemis could reach $8 billion per year for five years, or about $40 billion.

    Oh, and BTW, since we are running a $1.3 trillion per year budget deficit, we will borrow this money. Or maybe we could just eliminate social security, medicare, medicaid, food stamps, and agricultural subsidies altogether.

    Imagine how much it will cost to put Americans on Mars?
  • @SaremChuuk, the coin has two sides. The first side of this Artemis coin is space exploration and colonization of the other planets in our solar system. The 2nd side of the Artemis coin which is the most important is the containment of Russia and China. The space force was created for 1 purpose and that is US military and economic dominance over Russia and China.

    China is planning to send humans to the moon by 2025 and by 2050 they plan to have settlements and military bases on the moon.

    Japan has announced that it will follow the US and Trumps example and it too will create its own space force.

    Hundreds of years from now when human's are traveling amongst the stars and have colonized mars Trump will be remembered by billions and billions of people on earth on the moon and on Mars as the man who lead the human expansion beyond EARTH. His legacy is secured for the next hundred if not the next 1,000 years.

    40 billion in 5 years is nothing if it means securing US dominance and military edge over China and Russia. 40 billion spend on this project will benefit the US more for the next centuries to come. 40 billion being spend on the Artemis project will do the US more good than that medical for all democrats are pushing for which will cost the US taxpayers $34 trillion dollars in the next 10 years if ever Democrats implement it. I'll take Artemis for $40 billion over medical for All for $34 trillion.

    And i thought Democrats and SaremChuuk were forward thinkers. But here we have Trump and the conservatives preparing the trail for human progress into space.

    Ironic it is.
