Trump says NASA should stop talking about going back to the Moon

But our fearless leader seems to be confused about how planets work, and the internet is already exhausted.

Just three weeks ago, he spoke publicly in support of another lunar mission. That's a reasonable request; in fact, NASA itself has been laying out plans to further explore the red planet aerially with a helicopter in 2020.

NASA's website on Friday said the Artemis program would send "the first woman and the next man to the Moon by 2024 and develop a sustainable human presence on the Moon by 2028".

First evidence of water discovered on exoplanet
They also observed the signatures of hydrogen and helium in the atmosphere, two of the most abundant elements in the universe. Water is a must in the quest for life, in part because it absorbs oxygen. "Life as we know is based on water ", said Tinetti.

President Donald Trump - person who loves himself a Twitter rant, often of the slightly unhinged and regularly falsely accusatory type - has aimed his latest one at NASA and the way it's spending its money.

In that same tweet where he called out NASA, he suggested what they should be doing, saying "They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing".

Joking aside, Trump's statement was nearly certainly referring to the president's belief that any mission to the moon should be undertaken as part of a bigger push to Mars. Internet users commented on the tweet explaining to the President how Mars and Moon are different from each other and the former can not be a part of the later. "On average Mars is 140m miles from the moon".

Vikram Lander Has Been Found On Lunar Surface By ISRO
The moon landing by ISRO would have made India the fourth nation in the entire world to attempt and succeed in a lunar landing. Meanwhile, the orbiter of Chandrayaan-2 has located its moon lander Vikram, but no communication has been established yet.

The accelerated timetable for going to the moon was a key recommendation in March of the new National Space Council led by Vice President Mike Pence.

That didn't stop other Twitter users from mocking Trump's tweet, though. Some of these shows will run multiple times; below are the dates each show will air that week, or air for the first time. He raised eyebrows a year ago with plans for a military branch he dubbed the "Space Force", which would protect us from all the very obvious threats of the galaxy. But like Vox notes, NASA's 2024 plans for the Gateway is already very ambitious, and getting enough funding in time is dubious.
