NASA formed a partnership with the Canadian government to support a moon to Mars exploration effort. Canada is the agency's first international partner of a planned Mars expedition.

Jim Bridenstine, NASA administrator, said in a statement published Friday that the partnership will allow the agency to widen international partnership efforts for the Gateway lunar outpost.
