Moon landing: NASA chief says it will happen by 2024 and promises Mars landing soon after 1

“We are preparing to achieve pivotal milestones this year in development of the Space Launch System rocket, Orion spacecraft and the Gateway.

“These make up the backbone of our Artemis programmed and are fully supported by this budget.”

NASA’s Artemis programme is named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, who was the daughter of Zeus and the twin sister of Apollo.

The name reflects NASA’s goal of including women astronauts in all future missions, unlike the Apollo programme, which only featured men.

The lunar programme will also return humans to the Moon for the first time since NASA’s Apollo 17 mission in 1972.
