The United States is returning to the Moon.
NASA will introduce a new company named "Monthly Partnership" with American companies Thursday at 14:00 on Thursday. ET, the space agency said on the blog. Partnership with a private enterprise is another step for the long-term study and exploration of the Moon and Mars in the US.
NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine will make a announcement that will be broadcast live on the agency's website.
The blog post is detailed, but Bridenstine has offered several tweeting comments earlier this week and said that the US is heading to the moon "before you think."
The news comes just days after NASA landedon the surface of Mars. Solar propulsion, NASA's eighth spacecraft, landing on the planet, has already sent surface Mars.
