The next astronauts to work on the moon will likely live in larger habitats and drive sporty new rovers capable of two-week treks, NASA officials said Thursday.

Rather than assembling a lunar outpost over time from a multitude of small, separately launched modules, NASA is now hoping to land up to three large habitats on fewer flights to build a beachhead on the moon, the space agency said.


Doug Cooke, NASA's deputy associate administrator for exploration systems, said that the space agency's revised lunar plan calls for the launching of larger habitats to the moon on unmanned cargo flights.

This is the cover-up version of the space program. They, our government, are only going along with this because people are sick of the shuttle. But in reality there is a secret space program.

If it's so secret how do you know about it?

So I'm guessing that the suits have some kind of attached umbilical cord that allows the astronauts can move around in proximity of the rover.

By the way, I like space news too!
