NASA 2020: Mars exploration, Moon landing and more







For NASA, 2019 was a big year. The space agency spent the year studying asteroids up close, prepping soon-to-be-launch missions to Mars and hashed out plans for the Artemis missions that will return astronauts to the lunar surface. 2020? Well, it’ probably going to be even bigger.



"Launching Americans from US soil, sending a new rover to Mars and continuing to prepare for human missions to the moon are just a few of the things NASA has planned for 2020," NASA says.



Of the many seriously awesome things NASA teases here, the whole "launching astronauts from US soil" thing is one of the biggest. NASA believed that the Commercial Crew program would have already produced results by this point and the fact that both Boeing and SpaceX have yet to deliver a crewed launch vehicle is a major bummer for the space agency.
