Trump 2nd Term Policy Outline Calls For Moon Base & Mars Missions!

The Trump campaign has released a new policy outline for President Trump's second term, in which the President appears to be proposing manned missions to Mars in addition to a new permanent Moon base.

The policy outline linked to by the article:

With little mention of the space program from Biden, it seems likely President Trump is the candidate most supportive of NASA.

Re: Trump 2nd Term Policy Outline Calls For Moon Base & Mars Missions!

This topic seems to be a good place to put an update on the Biden team's thoughts about their NASA policy, if they are ultimately approved for a first term.

At this point, in early November (on Earth) it is not clear (to me at least) what is going to happen ...

Joe Biden just announced his NASA transition team. Here's what space policy might look like under the new administration.

My first reading of this article is encouraging.

Continued support for private space initiatives jumps off the page, for starters.

Re: Trump 2nd Term Policy Outline Calls For Moon Base & Mars Missions!

i see that the first post link is from Monday 24 August 2020 which does not connect well with the current election status.

The second link does not show anything on space but it could have months ago...

Aside from naming his team members, Biden hasn't yet released details about his plans for NASA.
