NASA is working towards establishing permanent human presence in space over the coming years. For better execution of this idea, NASA has released a revised blueprint with 63 final objectives for sustained human presence and space exploration under the 'Moon to Mars' plan.
It aims to send astronauts on the Moon in 2024. Later, the agency will use the learnings from the Moon mission to prepare for humanity's next giant leap – sending astronauts to Mars.
