NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine praised the agency’s 2020 budget proposal from the Trump administration today (March 11), describing how the budget will help the agency reach the moon, and then continue on to Mars.

“For the first time in over 10 years, we have money in this budget for a return to the moon with humans,” Bridenstine said in a presentation at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. “I’m talking human-rated landers, compatible with Gateway, that can go back and forth to the surface of the moon.”
