In April the Trump administration surprised everyone by announcing that it was directing NASA to land American astronauts on the moon within five years.
In today’s SpaceQ Podcast we’re featuring a Future In-Space Operation teleconference with Steve Clarke from the NASA headquarters where he is the Deputy Associate Administrator for Exploration in NASA’s Science Mission Directorate.
Steve spoke about NASA’s Exploration Campaign providing an update on the program and where it’s headed. The teleconference was held on April 17th after the Trump administration had made its bold announcement. Steve addressed some the issues NASA needs to consider in attempting to meet the Trump administrations goal.
He spent some time discussing the Lunar Discovery and Exploration Program and the Commercial Lunar Payload Services as well as international partnerships.
The presentation he mentions is available below.
