Project Artemis
Back to the Moon - to Stay
It's been 45 years since our last mission to step foot on another heavenly body, but finally we are once again preparing to push humans beyond the gravitational grasp of mother Earth.

The flags and footprints we left on the Moon in the 1960's and 1970's were symbols of what we can achieve when we just plain decide to do it, and our mission back to the Moon will certainly be the boldest, most ambitious undertaking for human spaceflight in nearly half a century.

It's called Project Artemis and, as before, it will inspire an entire generation of scientists and engineers. At the heart of the Artemis program is the goal to send the first woman to the moon.

What is Artemis?
She was the twin sister of Apollo and goddess of the Moon in Greek mythology. Now, she personifies our path to the Moon as the name of NASA's program to return astronauts to the lunar surface by 2024, including the first woman and the next man. When they land, our American astronauts will step foot where no human has ever been before: the Moon’s South Pole.

Working with U.S. companies and international partners, NASA will push the boundaries of human exploration forward to the Moon for this program. As a result of Artemis, NASA will be able to establish a sustainable human presence on the Moon by 2028 to uncover new scientific discoveries, demonstrate new technological advancements and lay the foundation for private companies to build a lunar economy.

Join us as we tell the amazing story of our next great mission of human space exploration: Project Artemis - Humanity's Return to the Moon. 

Get ready, everything is about to change...
