A land use project that could potentially be built on the moon could be approved by President Donald Trump in the coming weeks, according to an analysis by The Hill.
The land is already under consideration for use as a National Park.
The project has been a long-term dream of the Trump Administration and would be funded with federal funding, according a summary by The Trump Administration.
“The Moon is the first target to be designated for a Moon Land Use Project under the President’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget request,” the summary states.
The summary also says the project would be able to be completed by 2020.
A number of federal agencies are already exploring the possibility of building a large lunar base, including NASA and the Department of Energy.
“This is the second time that the Trump Government has approved a Moon land use plan,” the review says.
“The President has been extremely supportive of the Moon program and has indicated his interest in continuing to develop a lunar base.”
This time, however, the Trump team is looking to the future, not the past.
The Moon landings were a pivotal moment in space exploration, as they paved the way for humans to reach the stars and bring back some of the most valuable technologies from the past and future.
The Trump administration is also expected to announce the selection of a nominee to lead NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in 2018.
