Artemis launch: A new era of lunar exploration


Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Goddard describes the Artemis missions, a groundbreaking project that will send humans back to the Moon. NASA will soon launch Artemis I, the first flight test of the integrated Orion spacecraft and the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket. 

“Artemis I will fly 40,000 miles beyond the Moon and back, demonstrating our capability to send humans to lunar orbit on the second flight test, Artemis II,” says NASA.

“These flight tests will pave the way a new generation of highly talented and diverse corps of astronauts – including the first woman and the first person of color to step foot on the lunar surface during future Artemis missions.”
