White House: ‘The United States Will Return Astronauts To The Lunar Surface’

via 60 Minutes

Vice President Kamala Harris announced the United States’ plan to land an “international astronaut” on the moon by the end of the decade, emphasizing the importance of international collaboration in space exploration.

This announcement was made during the U.S. National Space Council meeting, where the need for global cooperation in space was stressed.

The move is seen as a response to China’s space activities and is part of the Artemis program, involving partnerships with various countries. (Trending: Prominent LGBTQ Activist Arrested Over Disturbing Charges)

The establishment of the Artemis Accords and the focus on responsible behavior in space were also highlighted during the meeting.

“For the first time in more than half a century, the United States will return astronauts to the lunar surface,” Harris said.

“We will establish the first lunar base camp and the first station in lunar orbit — all of this in collaboration with our allies and partners.”

“For example, the service module that will help carry Artemis astronauts to the Moon was built by the European Space Agency. And Europe, Japan, and Canada will make significant contributions to the lunar space station.”

“Today, in recognition of the essential role that our allies and partners play in the Artemis program, I am proud, then, to announce that alongside American astronauts, we intend to land an international astronaut on the surface of the moon by the end of the decade,” she said.

“This announcement and this meeting of our National Space Council is further demonstration of our belief in the critical importance of international partnership… I believe we are all here together because we agree space is a place of extraordinary opportunity.”

“So, our task – dare I say our duty – as nations must be to work together to make that opportunity real and to preserve it for future generations.”

“We know from experience that collaboration on space delivers,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said.

Additionally, new policies were announced to address issues such as the climate crisis and space debris.
