Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence has said that he would like to see humans back on the moon. A place where humans have not been for an extended period of time. He was speaking to the National Space Council.

Pence feels that this would be a "stepping stone' for future exploration of space for humans.

"We will return astronauts to the Moon - not only to leave behind footprints and flags but to build the foundation we need to send Americans to Mars and beyond," he stated. Mike Pence said.

This might also be something that the Trump White House would like to focus on when it gets its nomination in place for Nasa administrator.

Mike Pence also said that U.S space policy has lost its edge and needs to reassert itself. This can be done if people head back to the earth's largest satellite, the moon.

Going back to a place where we once left would be unique and useful to gain knowledge about the area and Mars itself.

"The president has charged us with laying the foundation for America to maintain a constant commercial human presence in low-Earth orbit. From there, we will turn our attention back toward our celestial neighbors," Pence said.

NASA is supposedly looking into building what they call a Deep Space Gateway. It's essentially a lunar base. It could end up being a testing ground for astronauts and their equipment in space.

Several partners have been asked to think about some of the technology that they would contribute. These partners include Canada, Europe, and Russia.

Robert Lightfoot, Nasa's acting administrator, said: "Nasa has been directed to develop a plan for an innovative and sustainable programme of exploration with commercial and international partners to enable human expansion across the Solar System, returning humans to the Moon for long-term exploration and utilisation, followed by human missions to Mars and other destinations."
