NASA to brief reporters on plans to return to Moon by 2020

The last man – an American – to walk on the Moon was in 1972, aboard Apollo 17. NASA plans the next lunar mission for 2020. A news conference will take place December 10th so NASA can share details about the 2020 lunar mission.

“NASA will brief reporters on the efforts to return humans to the moon by 2020. The roundtable discussion will focus on the significant progress made during 2007. It also will look ahead to a fast-paced year of events in 2008, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter/Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite mission and the Constellation Program’s first Orion pad abort test. ”
