  • NASA prepares to send 'first woman and next man' on Moon

We landed on the moon with 250 million Americans watching our backs. Hours later, at 21:56 CT (03:56 GMT), Neil Armstrong made history by becoming the first person to walk on the Moon.

"On the heels of the 50th Anniversary of #Apollo11, we've just issued a draft solicitation asking USA companies to help us develop the 21st century human landing system that will land the first woman and next man on the Moon in 2024", NASA chief Jim Bridenstine tweeted.

The space agency published documents explaining in detail what it is looking for in a lunar lander that will bring the two astronauts, one a woman, to the moon's south pole, where they will stay for six-and-a-half days.

Neil Armstrong's famous first steps solidified to Americans that we had won the Cold War Space Race.

This view was echoed by Pence during his tour of KSC.

NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine called the new development "an opportunity to take a giant leap forward for all of humanity".
