CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – Vice President Mike Pence will visit Kennedy Space Center on Wednesday to lead his final National Space Council meeting.
The National Space Council handles the nation’s space policies.
Pence is expected to talk about the nation’s ambitious deadline to get astronauts back to the moon. NASA’s Artemis program is hoping to land the next man and the first woman on the moon by 2024.
Experts expect President-elect Joe Biden to keep the National Space Council, but its direction and its policies moving forward could change.
The stage is set at @NASAKennedy for @VP @Mike_Pence this afternoon to chair the eighth meeting of the National Space Council under the @POTUS administration and announce 18 astronauts who will dream of going to the moon under the #Artemis program. #LaunchAmerica pic.twitter.com/B3SVdIfnVn— James Sparvero (@News6James) December 9, 2020
