NASA chief Jim Bridenstine has revealed hopes for a permanent base on the moon. At a meeting at the Johnson Space Center in Houston this week, Mr Bridenstine gave details on plans to build ‘Gateway’ modules to orbit the moon and close gaps in space exploration.The NASA boss told reporters that the agency wants “lots of humans in space” according to the website. The gateway modules would be crafts that orbit the moon rather than a settlement, which would make it easier for astronauts to stay in orbit and carry out brief surface missions lasting between 30 to 60 days. –– ADVERTISEMENT –– In future years a second Gateway could be used to take humans to Mars in ambitious NASA plans.
