For starters, there will be a seat on the 2024 lunar mission specially reserved for a woman, the first to ever walk on the Moon.
In contrast to our planet, the Moon doesn't have structural plates; rather, its structural movement happens as it gradually loses heat from when it was framed 4.5 billion years back. NASA's Apollo 11 mission succeeded in landing the first humans on the moon on July 20, 1969.

Bridenstine said he's already heard criticism of how the new spending will be "dead on arrival" in Congress because neither NASA nor the administration worked in advance with Congress on it. "There are many clues that we're actually looking at a man-made crater instead of a metreoid-caused one", the space agency said.
In March, Vice President Mike Pence urged NASA to accelerate its moon-landing program, moving it up from 2028 to 2024. That's a tight squeeze considering the amount of things NASA still has to get done.
Trump announced the plan on Twitter, writing, "Under my Administration, we are restoring @NASA to greatness and we are going back to the Moon, then Mars".
Bridenstine said he was optimistic that Trump's request would draw bipartisan support on Capitol Hill.
