Astronauts on the Moon. Computer artwork of astronauts and NASA's future lunar lander on the Moon. The astronauts are carrying out experiments and collecting samples to bring back to Earth. NASA's plans to send manned missions to explore the Moon's surface were announced on 19 September 2005. The first mission is scheduled for 2018. The program is predicted to cost $104 billion and will build outposts that will eventually allow manned missions to Mars and beyond. The last Moon landing was NASA's Apollo 17 mission in 1972.
