On Monday afternoon, the President will sign a proclamation giving NASA an open door to space exploration, which includes sending American astronauts to the moon and Mars.
During a signing ceremony in the Oval Office on Monday, Trump will authorize the acting NASA administrator Robert M. Lightfoot Jr.to "lead an innovative space exploration program to send American astronauts back to the moon, and eventually Mars".
It was all the way back in 1972 when humans last set foot on the moon during the Apollo 17 mission. Space Policy Directive 1 formalizes this sentiment. The Apollo 17 lunar lander touched down on the moon on December 11, 1972.

"The moon will be a stepping-stone, a training ground, a venue to strengthen our commercial and global partnerships as we refocus America's space program toward human space exploration", Pence said. At the time the president said he was "restoring America's leadership in space" and that exploration was essential to the economy and national security.
Trump is scheduled to sign the directive at 3 p.m.
