NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine announced at a congressional testimony on Tuesday a plan to put humans on Mars by 2033 and would request more money to fund the ambitious plan. It came after NASA's new schedule to land American astronauts on the moon by 2024, four years ahead of its previous schedule, an aggressive plan US Vice-President Mike Pence called a "stated policy of this administration", but American lawmakers worried NASA couldn't meet the deadline. Pence urged NASA last week to return American astronauts to the moon within five years, warning that if NASA cannot do it, it is NASA, not the mission, that must change. Bridenstine cited at the congressional hearing on NASA's budget in fiscal year 2020 the goal of putting astronauts on Mars by 2033 as a reason why NASA needed to accelerate the moon landing plan. The NASA chief said so in response to US congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson's question why the country needs a "crash program for the moon". "The moon is the proving ground," said Bridenstine. "We can move up the Mars landing by moving up the moon landing."
美国航天局(NASA)局长吉姆•布里登斯廷2日在国会的一场听证会上宣布,NASA计划在2033年将宇航员送上火星,并要求国会为这项雄心勃勃的计划提供更多资金。此前NASA将美国宇航员登陆月球的时间更改为2024年,比原计划提前了4年。美国副总统彭斯将这项激进的重返月球计划称为"本届政府的一项国策",但议员们对NASA能否在最后期限前完成使命表示质疑。彭斯上周向NASA施压,要求其在5年内实现宇航员重返月球的任务,并称如果NASA办不到,则NASA需要作出改变,而不是任务本身。在国会举行的关于NASA的2020财政年度预算的听证会上,布里登斯廷表示,2033年将宇航员送上火星的目标意味着登月计划需要提速。面对女议员艾迪•伯尼斯•约翰逊关于"为什么美国要加速登月脚步"的提问时,布里登斯廷回答道:"因为月球是试验场,载人登月计划提速,载人火星计划才能提速。"
