NASA plans to establish a permanent human presence on the Moon by 2028.
The agency aims to build a lunar base that can support long-term human habitation.
The base will include living quarters, laboratories, and other facilities necessary for scientific research and exploration.
NASA plans to use 3D printing technology to construct the lunar base using materials found on the Moon's surface.
The agency is also exploring the use of robots and autonomous systems to assist with construction and maintenance of the lunar base.
NASA's ultimate goal is to use the Moon as a stepping stone for human exploration of Mars and other destinations in the solar system.
The agency is working with international partners and private companies to achieve its goals for space exploration.
