NASA Plans a $28 Billion Costing Mission to Land First Woman on Moon by 2024


 NASA has revealed that it plans to send astronauts to the moon in 2024. NASA has shared an update on its Artemis program, including the latest Phase 1 plans to land the first woman and the next man on the surface of the Moon in 2024.

NASA estimates the journey to the moon is of $ 28 billion. Of this, $ 16 billion will be spent on the lunar landing module. As it is an election year, the US government will have to finance a project that Donald Trump has prioritized. It is learned that the money for this will be included in the budget years 2021-25.

NASA will begin missions ahead of the Artemis mission in 2021. Before landing on the moon, two space missions will take place around the moon. The SLS and Orion spacecraft will be tested on the Artemis One mission. The second Artemis mission will include astronauts. 

The next year, in 2024, the first woman and a man will land on the moon as part of Artemis' third mission. After launching on SLS, astronauts will travel about 240,000 miles to lunar orbit aboard Orion, at which point they will directly board one of the new commercial human landing systems, or dock to the Gateway to inspect it and gather supplies before boarding the landing system for their expedition to the surface.

NASA Patron Jim  Bridenstine revealed in a phone conversation with reporters on Monday about Artemis' mission to send a man to the moon. Political risks are often the biggest threat to NASA's operations. There are big problems, especially before the crucial election. Barack Obama has the experience of canceling a manned mission to Mars after spending millions of dollars on his predecessor's project. If Congress approves the first $ 3.2 billion for Christmas,  Bridenstine says it is poised to land on the moon in 2024.

NASA sees this lunar mission as the basis for future missions to Mars. The mission of the Artemis mission is to identify the challenges facing mankind in the nearest celestial body and to energize experiences. Artemis is preparing for the mission, the most powerful rocket ever built by NASA. The Space Launch System (SLS) is expected to be used for up to nine Artemis missions.
