At the NASA Ames Research Center/Bay Area Environmental Research Institute, Alexander Sehlke will lead a team whose mission is to complete an experiment started 50 years ago whose aim was to see how volatiles like water are stored on the moon's radiation-bombed surface.

Bridenstine said NASA will decide in the next couple weeks whether to stick with its rocket and delay - or go commercial for this one test flight. That's why it's "a critical piece of what NASA needs to build", Bridenstine told the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee.

NASA's SLS, or Space Launch System, rocket, could do everything in one fell swoop.

Female astronauts could soon embark on a history-making mission to Mars.

"The goal is to get back on track", he said. In response, he asked mission teams to take a serious look at commercial options. ULA's heavy lift rocket has launched payloads for the U.S. Air Force, National Reconnaissance Office and NASA in the last 15 years with a 100 percent success rate.

He did not say which private company he had in mind, but SpaceX would be a natural candidate with its Falcon Heavy rocket. It could also include in-orbit assembly of a launch vehicle with an upper stage, which would then be used to direct Orion and the SM to the Moon.

That scenario isn't a slam-dunk.

"I want to be clear, we do not have right now an ability to dock the Orion crew capsule with anything in orbit". "Here's the glory of the USA of A. We have an fantastic capability that exists right now that we can use off the shelf to accomplish this objective".

Bridenstine said the decision on whether to proceed with the shift could be made in the next couple of weeks.

With the move away from the more powerful SLS variant, a number of missions slated to be launched aboard the Block 1B will be shifted to commercial rockets.

Bridenstine said the Gateway will help explore other places, like Mars.

President Donald Trump unveiled his proposed budget this week, including plans for a ramped up effort to return to the moon and good news for the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Moses became the first woman to fly in a US commercial spacecraft.

Released by the Office of Management and Budget on March 11, the proposed budget allocates $21.02 billion to NASA. The Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission and the Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory (CLARREO) Pathfinder instrument are also facing termination due to budget cuts, while funding will be restored to the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) and Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3 (OCO-3) missions.
