Roger Wicker, R-Miss., chairman of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. But the molecular level activity has helped them to understand the hydration changes, that could benefit humanity in the future.

The space agency says that $8 million has been awarded to these selected teams, which include four NASA research centers, the universities of Arizona, Cal-Berkeley and New Mexico, and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory and Mount Holyoke College/Planetary Science Institute.

With the move away from the more powerful SLS variant, a number of missions slated to be launched aboard the Block 1B will be shifted to commercial rockets. He apparently was referring to 2014, when a Delta IV Heavy rocket built by United Launch Alliance in Decatur, Ala., launched a test Orion capsule on a four-hour experimental trip around Earth.

The Multilateral Coordination Board, which oversees the management of the Space Station, hopes that the Gateway, an outpost around the moon, will create a sustainable, cost-effective path to the Moon and beyond.

"Lunar hydration is tricky to measure from orbit, due to the complex way that light reflects off of the lunar surface", said study co-author Dr. Michael Poston, a research scientist at Southwest Research Institute. "We will extend the presence of humans one thousand times farther into space compared to today's International Space Station".

Scientists have hypothesized that hydrogen ions in the solar wind may be the source of most of the Moon's surface water. "It's also true that the first person on Mars is likely to be a woman", CNN cited Bridenstine as saying on a science and technology radio talk show "Science Friday". "We will use what we learn as we move forward to the Moon to take the next giant leap - sending astronauts to Mars".

Bridenstine didn't offer much in the way of specifics to back up his notion that women would lead the charge to the Moon and Mars, and that's not really that surprising.
