NASA’s website says about Artemis:
“With the Artemis program, NASA will land the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024, using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before. We will collaborate with our commercial and international partners and establish sustainable exploration by the end of the decade. Then, we will use what we learn on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap – sending astronauts to Mars.”
For the “Artemis Generation,” there are a host of activities related to the upcoming Artemis mission. These include student challenges, 10 ways to join Artemis, and much more. Through these activities, both teachers and students have the unique opportunity to team up with NASA to create a future in space!
