It’s been about 50 years since the last humans left the Moon. Today, NASA is working on Artemis, a set of missions that aims to send a whole new generation of astronauts up to put boots on the lunar surface. One of the goals of the mission is to create a habitat on the Moon that can be used by multiple missions, and a space station in orbit that can too. AND the Artemis missions are meant to be a step on the path to Mars!
In the latest episode of the podcast we’re talking science goals, space exploration goals, and the Moon with Artemis science lead Dr. Sarah Noble.
