We’re going to the Moon—again! In the next decade the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Artemis program will first orbit, and then land on the lunar surface.
What may seem like a re-run from the 1960s is designed to establish a more permanent human presence on the Moon. This will be used for both scientific and private aims, and it may serve as a stepping-stone to Mars. In this event, we’ll learn more about what’s planned, what we gain from human space exploration, and how we establish international agreements off-planet.
