Excited about the idea that humankind could soon find itself back on the moon once again?
You might have to wait a bit longer for that dream to come to fruition as the cost for the trip could come out to a whopping $20-30 billion, according to a NASA administrator. To give you perspective, the annual budget for NASA currently stands at $20 billion a year.
To reach its moon return goal, the American space agency will need around $4-5 billion in new funds each year, and Congress has not approved them yet in full.
While Congress has not provided approval, the current mission stands to be a steal when compared to the previous Apollo trip which cost more than $150 billion in today’s dollars.
Are you excited about the return to the moon? Do the costs make sense?
