Japan revised the timetable of its exploration program on Tuesday, with the goal of sending Japanese to the moon in the second half of the 2020s.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said at a meeting: “ is not only the frontier of hopes and dreams for people, but it also provides our economy and society with an important foundation for economic security.”

According to the plan’s draft timetable, Japan’s goal is to send the first non-American to the moon as part of the Artemis Project, a US-led plan to return astronauts to the moon. .

The plan also clarified that Japan hopes to launch a probe to explore Mars in 2024 and find ways to generate solar energy in space.

Neighboring China also plans to become a major aerospace power by 2030, and plans to send astronauts to the moon, thereby enhancing the prospects of the Asian race.

In May of this year, two years after the first spacecraft landed on the back of the moon, China became the second country to send a rover to Mars.

Japan announced that its exploration goal is to become the first space tourist to visit the International Space Station in more than a decade after the Japanese billionaire Maesawa Yusaku returned to Earth for a week after spending 12 on the International Space Station.
