Elon Musk says SpaceX could land on the moon in 2 years, Business Insider

"We recently asked Jeff DeWit, NASA's chief financial officer, about Musk's statements for an upcoming episode of "Business Insider Today," a top daily news show on Facebook. DeWit, who's in charge of helping the agency make the most cost-effective decisions, said he thought that the odds of SpaceX pulling off a private lunar landing with Starship before NASA can return there "are slim," but he did not rule out the possibility of a NASA-SpaceX partnership on a moon mission. In fact, he underscored the possibility. "More power to him. I hope he does it," DeWit said of Musk. "If he can do it, we'll partner with them, and we'll get there faster." He added: "This isn't about us doing it -- it's about America doing it. He's [got] an American company. I'd love to partner with him and get that done." SpaceX did not immediately respond to a request for comment about DeWit's statements."
