NASA has accepted a deadline challenge posed by US President Donald Trump in April to bring humans back to the moon in just five years, but while NASA is optimistic about meeting the 2024 time frame, not everyone is convinced.

According to the Mirror, James Burke, the scientific presenter who led the BBC’s Apollo 11 mission in 1969, said he would be surprised if NASA returned humans to the moon.

While Burke is not convinced that NASA will return to the moon chasing the deadline, he believes that the China National Space Administration could be the next to send humans to the moon and even to Mars.

“I think the Chinese will do something with the moon, and they will land on Mars, they will defeat the United States,” he said.

He also believes that the lack of funding can prevent NASA from reaching humans to Mars, which is intended to do in the thirties. “We do not have a missile big enough to do this, more than the United States wants to spend.”
