NASA plans to construct a solar-powered outpost at one the moon’s poles, officials with the U.S. space agency announced today.

The lunar base is expected to be permanently staffed by 2024.

The outpost concept was chosen over a competing strategy similar to the 1960s and ’70s Apollo program—a series of brief trips to the moon.
