In March, US President Donald Trump's organization moved the date for the following American lunar mission up by four years from its unique objective of 2028 while vowing to get a female space traveler to the Moon's surface out of the blue. 

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told columnists the office would require an extra $1.6 billion (generally Rs. 11,300 crores) to pay for the new ground and space vehicles expected to fulfill the time constraint. 

"This extra venture, I need all things considered, is a downpayment on NASA's endeavors to arrive people on the Moon by 2024," he said. 

Bridenstine said the mission was named Artemis after the Greek legendary goddess of the Moon and twin sister to Apollo, namesake of the program that sent 12 American space travelers to the Moon somewhere in the range of 1969 and 1972. 

NASA's all out yearly spending plan is around $21.5 billion (generally Rs. 1,51,000 crores), and in the 2019 monetary year, the organization spent about $4.5 billion on building up the Orion shuttle, the Space Launch System (SLS) substantial rocket and another lunar orbital small scale station, three components basic to the Artemis mission. 

Yet, numerous specialists and legislators are worried that NASA can't comply with the quickened time constraint, particularly given the major deferrals being developed of the SLS, which is being worked by aviation goliath Boeing. 

Asked how much the new mission would cost altogether, Bridenstine disputed, telling a journalist: "I would love to disclose to you that."
