Trump says NASA shouldn't be talking about return to Moon

Trump says NASA shouldn't be talking about return to Moon

President Donald Trump, who last month ordered NASA to go back to the moon, was seemingly swayed by a Fox Business segment on Friday, tweeting shortly after that the space exploration agency "should NOT" be moon-bound and focus instead on "much bigger things".

Trump also tweeted previously about going "back to the Moon". "They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!" the commander in chief tweeted from aboard Air Force One while returning from D-Day commemoration in France.

In it, he seems to state that the moon is part of Mars (TPM fact check: it is not). Those plans stem directly from a Trump administration Space Policy Directive 1 the president signed in late 2017.

It's unclear whether Trump's anti-moon missive is just a passing thought, or if it might spark a change in his administration's policy to push for a NASA moon return more than 50 years after Apollo 11 landed the first humans on the satellite's surface. "It marks a first step in returning American astronauts to the moon for the first time since 1972, for long-term exploration and use". "We'll be going to Mars very soon".

About 10 years ago, [the NWS] upgraded the system with what it calls Super Resolution, which allows vastly more detailed imagery. Lady beetles typically migrate down from the Sierra Nevada in early spring into the valleys in order to eat aphids and mate.

During his March speech at Marshall, Pence said that "after years of cost overruns and slipped deadlines, we're actually being told that the earliest we can get back to the moon is 2028".

With 2024 the new target for "boots on the moon", the Trump administration added $1.6 billion to NASA's 2020 budget request on May 13.

Now playing: Watch this: NASA isn't the only space agency trying to land on the. Nasa did not immediately respond to a question from the Guardian asking if the moon is part of Mars.

President Donald Trump on Friday tweeted out a mysterious Mars comment that has social media users blasting off their best jokes.
