It would also get $1.6 billion in new funding for NASA under a fiscal 2020 budget amendment proposed by the Trump administration, which is pushing to accelerate the lunar mission to 2024 - four years ahead of schedule.
NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine welcomed the news, describing it as an investment in the space agency's future.
Lucas continued, "I commend the Administration for putting forward an initial plan that is budget neutral and technically feasible and gives NASA the down payment to send Americans to the Moon by 2024 without jeopardizing other critical missions". That would be Mr Trump's past year in office if he is re-elected. "It's not coming from any part of NASA", he said.

Of all those components, only the Orion has flown in space, during an uncrewed test flight in 2014. Bridenstine has characterised that number as too high, but University of Colorado astrophysicist Jack O. Burns told the Times his estimate was that NASA actually needs $36 billion annually to launch in 2024.
$651 million of the budget has been allowed for a new large rocket NASA is developing named the Space Launch System, as well as the Orion capsule to take astronauts to deep-space destinations and to the moon. Bridenstine said during the call that he had not been briefed on what those budgetary offsets would be.

'The moon is the proving ground; Mars is the horizon goal'.
Getting humans back to the moon as fast as possible is meant to circumvent the "political risk" of space exploration, said Bridenstine.
