The US authorities intend to re-send astronauts to the moon in the next five years. By order of the head of the White House, Donald Trump, the official policy of Washington assumes that the first woman and the next man on the moon will be astronauts from the United States, US Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday, March 26.

However, speaking in Huntsville (Alabama), he sharply criticized the National Aerospace Agency (NASA), accusing him of "bureaucratic sluggishness", which led to delays in launching the Space Launch rocket for manned expeditions beyond Earth orbit.

The vice-president told that if the aerospace agency continues “thinking in an old manner”, the next flight to the Moon will be made by private commercial companies.

Calling for speeding up work, Pence pointed out competition from China, in particular, that the Chinese robot had reached the back of the natural satellite of the Earth.

Washington stopped its shuttle program in 2011. Since then, American astronauts have been flying to the International Space Station in Russian Soyuz rockets. The contract with Russia expires in November 2019.
