Back in March, the Trump administration declared that it was
directing NASA to send humans back to the Moon no later than 2024.
That’s an incredibly tight deadline for an agency with a budget
that is nowhere near what it was (in adjusted dollars, anyway) when
the Apollo missions made history, but Trump-appointed NASA
administrator Jim Bridenstine bent over backward and promised it
could be done.
Lots of people,
myself included, were (and still are) highly skeptical that
NASA can pull it off. Now, a new
budget amendment proposal just surfaced that reveals how much
more money NASA is going to need to even have a chance of
fulfilling the Moon 2024 promise: $1.6 billion.
