Six of the nine teams will look at three remaining lunar samples from Apollo missions 15, 16, and 17.
That makes SpaceX the more likely option for Bridenstine's suggestion, because of its lower costs and a high volume of launches. It's scheduled to last about seven hours. "Kennedy's budget also includes investments in technology; Low Earth Orbit and spaceflight operations; science; safety, security and mission services; and construction and environmental restoration programs and projects", Cabana said.
Bridenstine said the SLS program would continue, with a "full-up green run test" to be conducted at NASA's Stennis Space Center in MS in preparation for the crewed EM-2 launch, which is now scheduled for 2023.
Bridenstine says NASA will decide in the next couple weeks whether to stick with its rocket and delay - or go commercial for this one test flight.
"Every moment counts, because I want to be clear: NASA has a history of not meeting launch dates, and I'm trying to change that", he said. "These samples were deliberately saved so we can take advantage of today's more advanced and sophisticated technology to answer questions we didn't know we needed to ask", said Lori Glaze, acting director of NASA's Planetary Science Division.

A view of the Moon's south pole showing where reflectance and temperature data indicate the possible presence of surface water ice. The Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission and the Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory (CLARREO) Pathfinder instrument are also facing termination due to budget cuts, while funding will be restored to the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) and Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3 (OCO-3) missions.
Boeing is using more than 1,000 subcontractors in 43 U.S. states to get the job done. It's not just about studying the moon from an orbit around the moon.
According to previous researches, the main source of water - hydrogen ions from solar wind that would be cut off when the Earth travels between the moon and the sun. "I'm talking human-rated landers, compatible with Gateway, that can go back and forth to the surface of the moon". We welcome the opportunity to join NASA in the flights of Orion, SLS and the Exploration Ground Systems that support these journeys, and the rapid expansion of science, commerce and human exploration at the Moon and beyond.
In response, Bridenstine said "absolutely", adding further details about how women will be involved with a Mars mission.
