NASA Releases Video Announcing We're Going Back To The Moon By 2024 (And Staying There)

May 24, 2019

This is a video released by NASA and narrated by William Shatner announcing the organization's plans to return to the moon by 2024 and maintain a presence there as we push human exploration further into the solar system and beyond (the plan includes 'Gateway', a space station orbiting the moon and serving as a recharge and repair station for reusable lunar landers). The scientists and engineers in the video view the moon as a sort of jumping-off point for future missions into space, already outside the difficulty of escaping earth's atmosphere. So -- do you think you would be able to survive on the moon? That was a trick question, and the answer is only if I decide to let you, because I will be the leader of a ruthless barbarian moon tribe.

Keep going for the video and get amped about space.

Thanks again to K Diddie, who agrees without proper funding NASA isn't going to be sending anything to the moon besides postcards.

    What a maga idea!

  • Eric Ord

    I could never land on the moon! I'd get stuck there and have to grow potatoes to survive.

  • Bling Nye

    Your father managed it. He landed on your mom's ass, got stuck there and had to grow potatoes to survive.

    In 2024, astronauts will be staying in the moon.

    Then later in 2037, the moon breaks aparts after humanity overpopulated it.

    Seems like a bad idea to mine the moon for materials when it isn't self sustaining which in turn could impact it's purpose here on earth…

  • Richard Trevenen

    Shatner says 2024 so 2024 it is!

    I bet the sex will be fun.

  • Nicholas Conrad

    Oh, did you read that book based on true events: "sex on the moon"? In the end, it wasn't even very fun. :(

    He got arrested and charged with terrorism

  • Douchy McDouche

    No, but I saw "Man on the moon". In the end, it wasn't very fun either :(

    He never made it to the moon.

  • Colin Lang

    I know some people I'd like to ship to the moon and leave them there....where do I sign them up?

  • David

    Me too and everyone of them are leftists Congressmen and women who think they have a right to steal my hard working tax dollars and give it to illegal aliens.

  • Wooder

    were you the same guy that signed them up for the Mars mission? they were so bad they cancelled the Mars trip.

  • Megatron Jenkins

    Yeah, thanks, Colin!!!

  • Wooder

    I've heard the WiFi is horrible on the moon...I'm out!

    PS: Google maps doesn't work either...head spinning.

  • Ron Jones
  • Mark

    The moon will have its own internet!

    I imagine Tinder will be pretty lame as well. :-p

  • captaindash

    No swiping. Only stroking. Not lame at all though. Think about how far you'll be able to shoot.

  • Bling Nye

    2024 isn't realistic, but it's a nice distraction. Especially for people that look back on the moon missions as a time when America was "great"...

    The guy they hired to lead this just quit yesterday.

    That said, I do hope I get to see us going back to the moon to stay in my lifetime. Sounds like 2028 is a bit more realistic, assuming we don't all end in a nuclear conflagration before then.

    The technology exists already and it wouldn't be too hard to take one of the existing rocket platforms and add all the redundancies required for moving humans.
