To those who think we will do the same thing we did 50 years ago, I want to be perfectly clear: It is not our vision, type Bridenstine and continues:

Bridenstine stated that the plans probably will begin next week, when partners from the private sector and other places have been invited to the head office in Washington for a thorough discussion about the work. To date NASA has already signed a contract with nine companies to send cargo to the moon.

All of this is done in order to develop an understanding of the environment on the månenes backing - also called "the dark side", wrote the newspaper.
