NASA Wants to Build Railway Tracks on the Moon for Better Transport of Humans & Cargo

NASA has embarked on an unprecedented endeavor to develop a railway system on the moon, representing a significant leap forward in space exploration.

According to reports from global media outlets, NASA is taking the lead in constructing an advanced lunar railway system aimed at facilitating the transportation of humans and cargo to Mars in the future.

In a press briefing held at NASA’s headquarters in Washington, agency representatives, alongside Jan Nelson, Executive of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program, unveiled these groundbreaking initiatives reminiscent of science fiction. In addition to the lunar railway system, the projects include innovative fluid-based cameras and a transit system tailored for future Mars missions. These initiatives have successfully cleared initial phases under NASA’s NIAC program, with plans to allocate $600,000 for further research and development over the next two years.

While the realization of these projects is not guaranteed, Jan Nelson remains optimistic about their potential to reshape the landscape of space exploration, pushing the boundaries of human ingenuity and technological innovation.
