DoA new policy has been signed at the White house Space Policy on Monday by the president, a change in national space policy that directs the human expansion across the solar system and to bring back to Earth new knowledge and opportunities. The signed policy will provide an emphasis to effectively organize the government, private industry, and international efforts toward returning humans to the Moon and bring the foundation of human exploration of Mars.
President Trump said, " The directive I am signing today will refocus America's space program on human exploration and discovery". Since 1972, It is the first step in returning America astronauts to the Moon. It will be an essence in the long-term exploration and for Mars exploration.

NASA is also looking forward to returning humans to the Moon, and traveling mars can open deeper solar system beyond. NASA also assured that it has been committed to the effort and they are developing the flexible deep space infrastructure to support increasingly complex missions to strengthen American leadership in the boundless frontier of space. The new directive will be reflected in NASA's Fiscal Year 2019 budget request next year.
