NASA's 9-year Moon landing plan has leaked

An internal NASA diagram showing details of its plans for the next decade has started to circulate online.
Entitled "Integrated Exploration Manifest" and labelled "Predecisional - For NASA Internal Use Only", the plan outlines a manned landing on the lunar surface by 2024, annual landings after that and the installation of the first part of what will eventually become a permanent lunar base by 2028.

Each stage of the process is represented on the diagram with illustrations of each piece of hardware including NASA's Space Launch System, a lunar landing vehicle and a small space station that will serve as a staging area in lunar orbit for the lander to depart from and return to during each mission.

The plan will require a total of 37 launches and will involve several private companies.
While it remains unclear exactly how much this will all cost or whether it can be done in time, there is no doubt that both NASA and the US government are taking the 2024 deadline very seriously.

With other countries like China vying to send humans to the Moon as well within the next decade, we could be looking at the beginnings of a whole new space race.

A full-size version of the plan document can be viewed - here.

THIS IS COUNTER INTELLIGENCE. ITS MEANT TO CAUSE CHINA TO SPEND ALL ITS MONEY ONITS LUNAR PROGRAM, WE KNOW HUMANS CANT BE SUSTAINED ON THE MOON DUE TO THE MICRO ABRASIVE NATURE OF THE DUST. WE DONT REALLY PLAN TO GO BACK....THAT OR MY LOCKHEED CONTACT IS A LIAR.

Here's an idea. Instead of competing with other nations (ie: China) why don't we all cooperate with space exploration. A lot more would get done then...

A lot more would get done and it would be cheaper for everyone if we could all get together BUT with politics being what they are it won't happen.

i think its pretty clear, or maybe you dont think throwing some bait out for our enemies is a good idea?

I can see where you're coming from and it's entirely a possibility but, regardless of whether baiting an enemy is a good idea or not, stating that this is definitively counter intelligence without any supportive evidence seems premature and just insights dissension. Not everything is a conspiracy.
