President Donald Trump has many visions for America one of which includes landing astronauts on the moon or Mars by the mid of 2020. Trump believes that sending astronauts to a different world is “Not too a big dream,” he also believes that the United States is ready to unlock the mysteries of space.
Trump wants to simply set free the dreams of American people, along with the idea of sending astronauts into space, he also mentioned creating jobs, reducing crime, curing diseases and shifting millions of Americans from welfare to work.
While these are all a part of his accomplishments, he gave no details about which destination he favors for American astronauts. The last Apollo moon mission returned to earth in 1972, since then no American has ventured into deep space. The nation has lacked the ability to launch its own astronauts since July 2011 when the space shuttle program came to an end as per Space.
At present the situation seems to be changing because of the American companies Space X and Boeing. They are currently developing a Space Station to take astronauts under multibillion dollar NASA contracts.
On the other hand NASA is working hard to get man to Mars by the mid of 2030, this was directed by former president Barrack Obama back in 2010. To succeed in this mission the agency is developing a giant rocket called “Space Launch System” and the Orion capsule to make this happen.
As for Space X and Boeing, both of their private spacecrafts should be ready by 2018 or 2019. Orion and the “Space Launch System” are already scheduled to fly together in 2018 on mission around the moon called as “Exploration Mission 1.” NASA is also considering astronauts on this mission, with all the developments and as Trump says it looks like America might be ready to unlock the mysteries of space.
