NASA leader on the Artemis program and plans to land on the moon by 2024 NASA leader on the Artemis program and plans to land on the moon by 2024In space watch NASA is, is program also aims to establish sustainable exploration by 2028. The eventual goal is to use the lessons learned from the Moon program to eventually send astronauts to Mars. Zodiac sign is NASA’s administrator facility in New Orleans program and the first woman to the South Pole of the Moon by 2024. So we’re on an aggressive schedule and the SLS rocket behind me is the most powerful rocket ever built and, of course, built by NASA with our prime contractor Boeing. This is the vehicle that’s going to take. Our first met our first woman and our next man to the South Pole of the Moon by 2024. It sounds promising so when we want to lead the world which would Liz what we doing, they’re, not always friendly the United States, if, in fact we’re not leading so we’re trying to do, is we’re trying to make sure that we’re leading the world we’re bringing our International partners with us, but the other thing is: we get amazing Technologies whenever we explore space but lot of people watching this right now I’ll be watching on DirecTV Dish Network, maybe they’re, watching on the internet. Internet Broadband from space. A lot of people have internet television. All of these activities were born from this little agency called NASA when it comes to space space communication back in the 1960, and even in the 1950s. Before that, that’s just Communications. We talked about GPS and navigation. We talked about predicting whether how we understand climate, certainly yeah, when we talk about National Security and defense, lot of people don’t realize every banking. This country is, depending on the timing signal from GPS to really basic needs that all of it take advantage of everyday or develop from space exploration, but there’s so much more in going to the Moon sustainably. There’S a long-term goal, not just the longest, a short-term goal, but we want to make sure that when we go, we leave the entire world. So if you don’t get the money, though, is the 2024 deadlines still possible to make sure that they found the government make? No mistake: I’ve talked to members on both sides of the aisle. Everybody wants to make sure that we’re leading in space, and so that’s a very positive thing. It is true that when there is gridlock, it slows us down and it makes us get more creative. I think there are way is it right now we can keep moving forward even under a CR and we’re going to explore all of those options and we’re constantly making sure that we’re communicating with legislators and letting them know how important it is for us to get Appropriations, so we can move forward in the way that we’d like not in the way have to, though I think it’s really interesting a how NASA is working with some private companies. A private companies, including SpaceX and blue origin, will have an opportunity to actually bid on proposals to provide deliveries to the surface very cool. Why is that so choosing to partner with these private companies? What is the long-term goal here so wants to be. One customer customer is in a robust commercial Marketplace. We also want to have numerous providers that are competing against each other on cost and Innovation that drive down costs and it increases access in some areas. The government is going to have to leave because there is not a commercial Marketplace, but when it comes delivery of car go to the moon when it comes to access to low earth orbit. These are activities where we can take advantage of commercial capabilities and NASA can. Instead of purchase own and operate, we can be the customer and I think that’s good for the American. In fact, that leads exports for the United States of America space to be an export which it already is the we want that export to grow. A lot of people are familiar with the balance of payments challenge. Do we have the trade deficit? Aeronautics and Space are very positive developments. We have a trade surplus in these activities because NASA has lead. Part of the Artemis program includes the goal of sending the first American woman to the Moon. Why is that part of the program inspirational when we went in the 1960s? All of our astronauts came from fighter pilot backgrounds and test pilot background and there were no opportunities for women in those days will today we have a very diverse, highly-qualified astronaut Corps that includes women. We call the program Artemis named after the twin sister of Apollo, and she was the goddess of the moon and the person most excited about. This, of course, is my eleven-year-old daughter and I her to see herself as having every opportunity. I saw myself as having when I was growing up, so I think this is inspirational and when we go to the moon this time we go with all of America Wego sustainably. We learn how to live and work on another world and we take that knowledge on. I LoveIt Jim bridenstine. Thank you very much. NASA’s Artemis program plans to put Americans back on the moon by 2024. NASA Administrator Jim Birdenstine joins CBSN AM to talk about the program.
