NASA’s director really wants Elon Musk to stop smoking weed in public

NASA возобновляет Лунную программу

America's next moon landing will be made by private companies, not Nasa.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said that Musk is committed to safety as anybody and he understands that smoking pot publicly was not appropriate.

NASA said in its own statement that winning proposals "will enable important technology demonstrations that will inform the development of future landers and other exploration systems needed for humans to return to the lunar surface, and help prepare the agency to send astronauts to explore Mars".

Private companies - instead of NASA - will lead the race back to the moon, with launch target dates set for 2019 - the 50 anniversary of the first manned moon landing.

NASA announced several commercial partners Thursday in the US space agency's quest to return humans to the moon - and eventually Mars.

These Commercial Lunar Payload Services contracts are initial steps toward continuous sustainable scientific study and human exploration on the moon, eventually Mars, and beyond.

Maston Space Systems: A Mojave-based company focused on reusable rocket technology and reliable planetary landers for the Earth, Moon, Mars, and beyond.

Comey will resist in Court this abuse of process". "Let's have a hearing and invite everyone to see". Comey tweeted of House Republicans: "I've seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion".

NASA is planning to conduct workplace reviews of SpaceX and Boeing, another contractor, but which were already under consideration before Musk's appearance on the Rogan podcast.

The space agency will hire one of these nine companies to build the spacecraft that will carry the agency's equipment and experiments to the moon. Rather, they likened the effort to high-risk, high-reward bets by venture capital investors.

NASA Watch's Keith Cowing noted the announcement echoed a similar one 15 years ago in the same room to return to the moon, without much progress since.

Those companies are Astrobotic, Deep Space Systems, Firefly Aerospace, Intuitive Machines, Lockheed Martin, Mastern Space Systems, Moon Express, Draper and Orbit Beyond.

Since the first introduction people have not been to the moon.

NASA will also re-evaluate the private sector landscape periodically for emerging players that may be able to offer lunar delivery capabilities, and which may offer CLPS contacts to more companies through on-ramping process. Under President George W. Bush, companies were awarded contracts to fly cargo to the International Space Station.

According to The Atlantic, Bridenstine said his decision was influenced by tragedies in NASA's history, including the Apollo 1 fire in 1967, which killed three astronauts during a ground test, as well as the Challenger and Columbia space shuttle disasters in 1986 and 2003.
