NASA needs billions more to return to the moon

In order to reach its moon return goal, NASA will need around $4-5 billion in new funds each year, and Congress has not approved them yet in full.

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?
