HOUSTON — Jim Bridenstine wants to make sure that there is never another day when humans are not in space.
"In fact," the NASA administrator said, "we want lots of humans in space.".
Bridenstine thinks NASA should have taken an opportunity to pursue the moon almost a decade ago.
"If you go back to 2009, the United States, through NASA, made a critical discovery, which is the moon has hundreds of billions of tons of water ice.
"From 1969, when we first landed on the moon, up until 2009, a lot of people believed that the moon was bone-dry.
Now, as NASA administrator, Bridenstine is carrying out President Donald Trump's direction of returning astronauts to the moon.
"We need to get to more parts of the moon than we have ever gotten to ever before," he said. »
