American President Donald Trump has stamped on new space policy. This has cleared the way for the first time to send the American astronauts to the moon since 1972. This policy is planning to send space agency NASA to the first US citizen to the moon and then to Mars.

The Donald Trump government needs NASA out of the International Space Station by 2025, and private big business running the place in its place. Many space experts and representative are expressing concern. NASA has spent close to $100 billion on the range outpost since 1990.

Under President Trump’s 2019 proposed budget deliver Monday, United States of America government financial support for the space station would end by 2025. The government would set to the side $150 million to encourage business progress and use future savings to aim for the moon.

The first piece launched in 1998 and the complex essentially done with the departure of NASA’s space shuttles in 2011. MIT astronautics lecturer Dava Newman, who was the deputy NASA chief under Barack Obama, called the space station, the foundation of space exploration today but said the Trump government proposal makes sense because it is doing long-term planning.

The president offered to shift a large amount of money from the space station, satellites studying a warm Earth and a major space telescope toward a multi-year $10.4 billion exploration plan expected at returning astronauts to the moon in about 5or 6 years. The president’s budget proposal, including NASA section, was outdated even before it was made free, but it provides a view of the government priorities.

We are building capability for the eventual human exploration of deep space and the moon is a stepping stone, NASA acting chief financial officer Andrew Hunter said in a Monday news conference.

All in all, the government proposed a budget, along with an addition, look for to increase NASA’s budget slightly to $19.9 billion. The supersize Space Launch System rocket built in NASA to send astronauts beyond low-Earth orbit – along with its Orion crew capsule – would get $3.7 billion under this budget.

An experiment of this system would stay on track for 2020, with a 1st crewed launch around the moon three years later, according to budget details.
