NASA Artemis Moon Program

Humans haven’t stepped foot on the Moon since 1972, but NASA’s Artemis Moon Program aims to break that streak by putting the first woman and person of color on its surface within the next few years. The pioneering astronaut’s destination is Shackleton Crater, which is located near the south pole of the Moon and is believed to contain frozen water ice within its permanently shadowed depths. NASA is working in collaboration with both international and commercial partners to launch the Artemis astronauts aboard the much-anticipated Space Launch System and utilize the future Gateway orbiting outpost to usher in a riveting new chapter in space exploration meant to test new technologies and resources that will take humans to Mars and beyond.
