As advanced as technology is today, it’s incredible to think that the U.S. hasn’t been back to the moon since 1972. Well, Elon Musk wants to change that, and it appears that could happen sooner rather than later.
On Thursday, the SpaceX founder retweeted, or X’d (I’m not sure what to call it anymore), the company’s post displaying a “Raptor engine demonstration of a descent burn to the lunar surface,” with a very short, but interesting caption.
“Moon soon,” Musk wrote.

The last time the U.S. went to the moon was in December of 1972 aboard the Apollo 17, which was also the last time man set foot on the surface of the moon.
Musk’s comment comes as SpaceX is close to procuring a license for their Starship rocket to make it’s second liftoff from its Starbase site in Texas, according to Space.com.
