A release NASA has programmed alarms to all those lovers of space phenomena, since it has set the date and time when a “new and exciting” discovery on the Moon will be announced carried out by the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA, for its acronym in English).
The indicated day is October 26, 2020, an announcement that can be seen live from 12 pm. (EDT), that is, at 4:00 p.m. in Spain. It will be through a teleconference, which will be broadcast live in this link.
The new discovery is within NASA’s Artemis program, which aims to sending the first woman and the next man to the lunar surface, a goal set for the year 2024.
Thus, NASA is trying to understand and study new data about the Moon. Later, NASA wants to reach Mars. Human exploration of this planet would not be until the 2030s.
