NASA begins search for partners to help land astronauts on the Moon

With its eyes set on returning humans to the moon, NASA is inviting US-based companies to help design and develop lunar landers, reusable systems for astronauts to land on the earth's natural satellite.

The President's direction from Space Policy Directive-1 galvanizes NASA's return to the Moon and builds on progress on the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft, efforts with commercial and worldwide partners, and knowledge gained from current robotic presence at the Moon and Mars.

NASA has reportedly been given a clear mandate to by Donald Trump and Congress to step up space missions with Mars the ultimate goal. "I want to be clear - that is not our vision", said Jim Bridenstine, the NASA administrator.

Bridenstine revealed the agency's goals for the near and distant futures, including getting astronauts back to the Moon and sending the first ones to Mars. "This time, when we go to the moon, we will stay", he wrote on Ozy.

When NASA first landed astronauts on the Moon several decades ago, it was an entirely government-driving affair.

Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to set foot on the moon in 1969.
