Ingenuity has long been a hallmark of American society.
Not only were were at the very forefront of the industrial revolution, but our ability to innovate at a breakneck pace has made us the envy of the world.
One achievement above all stands as the ultimate testament to this fact: Our landing on the moon.
Now, with NASA reemerging on the national scene as of late thanks to talk fo the “space force” and a number of credible, military UFO sightings, a fascinating leak from within the organization has Americans scratching their heads.
NASA’S official plans to build a permanent base on the Moon have seemingly leaked online, revealing how and when astronauts will return to the rocky world for the first time in 50 years.
Internal documents appear to show how Nasa wants to launch 37 rockets to the Moon within the next decade, with at least five of these carrying astronauts.
And this isn’t some previous plan rehashed…not in the slightest.
Starting with an unmanned rover in 2023, the space agency is expected to land people on the Moon in 2024.
Nasa will then fire manned missions to Earth’s neighbour every year between 2024 and 2028, according to the documents, which were obtained by Arstechnica.
The decade-long program culminates with a permanent lunar base, which Nasa wants to start building in 2028.
The plans began circulating among Nasa staff last week, according to Arstechnica’s Eric Berger.
Talks of populating the moon have long been a part of the American space discussion, but this latest leak has relayed a far more cogent plan than previously believed to exist.
And, once again, American ingenuity will be on full display.
