The mission is named Artemis after the twin sister of Greek god Apollo, after whom NASA named its iconic human spaceflight program.

The project will be possible thanks to a $1.6 billion boost Trump announced to NASA's budget on Monday.

Watters and his team also looked carefully at data from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and identified areas near the faults that look like they've been recently disturbed - boulders that have rolled in the near past, or evidence of landslides.

"Under my Administration, we are restoring @NASA to greatness and we are going back to the moon, then Mars". The space agency has said it is continuing to work with the Trump administration on a budget request that would make that happen, although no official figures have been publicly discussed.

The revised plan from NASA calls for launching components of the small, space-station-like Lunar Gateway on commercial rockets by 2024.

"As you know, the president has given our agency the bold charge to land the next man and the first woman on the lunar South Pole by 2024", Bridenstine said in a video message to NASA staff. It includes $1.6 billion in additional funding.

During a speech at NASA headquarters in Washington, NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said the additional money, which the White House said on Monday it was seeking from Congress, would cover programs until 2020.

"Among other things, it will allow us to accelerate our development of the Space Launch System and Orion, it will support the development of a human lunar landing system and it will support precursor capabilities on the lunar surface, including increased robotic exploration of the moon's polar region", he said.

The amendment envisions a simplified blueprint for the Lunar Gateway, the planned space outpost in lunar orbit that will serve as a stepping stone for sending astronauts to the moon's surface.

The Gateway is a small spaceship for astronauts and science experiments which will orbit the moon, acting as a kind of staging post.

According to the Office of Management and Budget, the extra money for the moon mission would come from surplus funding for Pell grants, the financial aid program for low-income college students.

'I have an 11-year-old daughter and I want her to be able to see herself in the same way that our current very diverse astronaut corps sees itself, ' Bridenstine said during the summit.

"We envision strong commercial partnerships that will increase innovation and reduce cost to the American taxpayer".

Last week, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos unveiled the Blue Moon lunar lander, a giant vehicle created to deliver payloads - and perhaps astronauts one day - to the surface of the moon. "The 2024 missive left NASA in a tizzy - scrambling to develop a plan and hastening to pull together a budget amendment that still have not been delivered to Congress; and upending groundwork with global partners on future exploration goals".
