NASA Going to Moon – level 2

06-06-2019 07:00

NASA wants to return astronauts to the moon by 2024. Three companies, Astrobotic, Intuitive Machines and Orbit Beyond, are going to help NASA with the plan.

They are going to provide lunar landing services which will deliver cargo. All of this is part of a program called Artemis.

If everything goes according to plan, NASA hopes to have a sustained human presence on the moon by 2028.

Difficult words: lunar (about the moon), cargo (things that you bring to another place), sustained human presence (a place where people can live).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
