The National Aeronautics Space Administration vows to land a man and a woman on the moon under the Artemis program by 2024. But the battle between nations may be brewing on off-world mining rights.

The NASA-led program garners $25.2 billion a year in taxpayer funding that includes $3.7 billion a year dedicated to off-world landings.

NASA plans to dispatch small mechanical probes to the lunar surface near the southern polar region using the Lunar Gateway.

Additionally, China has approached Russia with various proposals for a joint moon base.
