Trump Tweets Confusing Message To NASA

President Donald Trump sent a confusingly-phrased tweet that initially gave the impression he believed the moon was part of Mars, the tweet read, "NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon - We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part)." Business Insider reports NASA officials have said bolstering their presence on the moon will be an essential step towards conducting further research on Mars. NASA writes on a section of their website titled "Moon to Mars, "Exploration of the Moon and Mars is intertwined. "The Moon provides an opportunity to test new tools, instruments and equipment that could be used on Mars, including human habitats, life support systems, and technologies and practices that could help us build self-sustaining outposts away from Earth."
