To achieve this goal, NASA has called on aerospace industry producers to present plans to build a space station that orbits around the moon, dubbed the "Lunar Gateway", as well as spacecraft that land on the moon.
The lunar modules used by NASA during the Apollo missions carried two people and weighed 4.7 tons without fuel.
LOCKHEED Martin have unveiled a huge lunar lander twice the size of any spaceship to land on the moon before that could keep astronauts on the moon for two weeks.
"This is a concept that takes full advantage of both the Gateway and existing technologies to create a versatile, powerful lander that can be built quickly and affordably".
Lockheed's craft is proposed to be able to blast back off the moon's surface and return to base.
'This lander could be used to establish a surface base, deliver scientific or commercial cargo, and conduct extraordinary exploration of the Moon'.

The lander is part of Blue Origin's broader mission of enabling a future in which millions of people live and work in space, the company said.
Lockheed said that the lander design uses technology developed for its Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, a vehicle it says is "the only spacecraft designed for long-duration, human-rated deep space exploration".
Cichan continued: "Because this lander doesn't have to endure the punishment of re-entering Earth's atmosphere, it can be re-flown many times over without needing significant and costly refurbishment".
"Sacrifice has also come in the countless hours dedicated by the NASA personnel - on the ground and in space - (that they) have spent away from families to plan and execute missions".
