However, Pence believes starting with the Moon and establishing a firm presence on Earth's nearest neighbor, as "a vital strategic goal", ought to come first.
The Verge noted how NASA has been developing a new rocket and spacecraft - the Space Launch System and Orion - to take astronauts into deep space and onto Mars.
He called the moon a "stepping stone" and "training ground" to help refocus the program on "human" space exploration. Pence also proclaimed that the U.S. will be the first nation to put humans on Mars - whether that will be via NASA or a private company like SpaceX (or a mixture of both) is yet to be seen. Pence also said that there will be a "constant presence" in low-Earth orbit.
At its first meeting in a quarter-century Thursday, the recently-resurrected National Space Council met with Vice President Mike Pence to discuss the USA space agenda's aim to send astronauts "to Mars and beyond". The first, "on the Moon", is fairly obvious.
Orbital ATK's Thompson said the US should be able to put astronauts on the moon within five years through such vehicles.
"America will be the first nation to bring mankind to Mars", Pence wrote. This raises questions about the extent to which such a venture, which nearly certainly must ultimately have worldwide support to succeed across multiple administrations, will be cast as an global venture. This is curious, because when Pence visited Houston to introduce the 2017 astronaut class, five of the 12 candidates were women, as was half of the 2013 class. Currently, NASA relies on the Russian space agency, Roscosmos, to transport astronauts to and from the space station.
Rather, Pence cites the need to "look beyond the halls of government for insight and expertise".
After talking about how "we will blaze new trails into that great frontier" Pence turned the discussion to the dangers of space and how much of the USA intelligence system and day-to-day life are dependent on commercial satellites operating safely. It will be chaired by Vice President Mike Pence and include participation by acting NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot, as well as a number of Trump Administration cabinet members and senior officials, and aerospace industry leaders.
