The first mission – known as Artemis I – is on track for 2021 without astronauts, and Artemis II will fly with crew in 2023. In the Phase 1 plan, NASA notes additional details about In 2024, Artemis III will be humanity’s return to the surface of the Moon - landing the first astronauts on the lunar South Pole.

MISSION PATCHES. + NASA is working toward launching Artemis I in 2021, an uncrewed flight to test the Space Launch System and Orion spacecraft together. WOMAN ON THE MOON A portrait of the Greek Goddess Artemis is illustrated in the highlights and shadows of the crescent Moon topography.

NASA announced that it plans to land the first female ever on the moon in 2024. According to NASA, it has been 45 years since U.S. astronauts set foot on the moon, but the upcoming Artemis mission aims to establish a sustainable human presence on the Moon by 2028 with the "first woman and the next man," greeting the lunar surface.

During the original Apollo missions, multiple American male astronauts stepped foot on the Moon, the last occurring during the Apollo 17 in 1972. Sally Ride became the first American woman to enter space in 1983 on the STS-7 mission.

NASA has released its billion plan to land the first woman and the next man on the moon in 2024. The mission , part of NASA 's Artemis plan, would “With bipartisan support from Congress, our 21st century push to the Moon is well within America’s reach,” Bridenstine said in a statement.

Artemis aims to chart a radically new path for the nation's space exploration. NASA's Artemis mission seeks to "demonstrate new technological advancements and lay the foundation for private companies to build a lunar economy." Named after the twin sister of Apollo in Greek mythology, Artemis will have humans explore the moon's South Pole surface for the first time ever and lay the groundwork for human missions to Mars this century.

To this end, the space agency is building the new Orion spacecraft as well as the highly-advanced Space Launch System (SLS), which aim to propel heavier payloads off the Earth's surface and send humans into space for longer durations than previously achieved. NASA will also build a small spaceship, Gateway, that will orbit the moon and enable easier access to and from Earth.

NASA 's Apollo 11 mission succeeded in landing the first humans on the moon on July 20, 1969. Only 12 humans, all male, have ever walked on the moon The Artemis program will search for and potentially extract resources such as water that can be converted into other usable resources such as

In a promotional video about the upcoming projects, NASA scientists explain that millions of tons of water-ice were discovered beneath the moon's surface in 2009. NASA believes this ice can be extracted by machines and converted into either drinking water or oxygen for astronauts, or it can be separated from hydrogen and used as lunar surface rocket fuel.

While there had been previous calls by politicians for U.S. astronauts to return to the moon, NASA's impetus to once again create a lunar presence with astronauts gained new traction under the Trump administration. In May 2019, President Trump added $1.6 billion to NASA's $21 billion 2020 budget to kickstart plans to return humans to the moon.

"President Donald Trump has asked NASA to accelerate our plans to return to the Moon and to land humans on the surface again by 2024," NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a statement. "We will go with innovative new technologies and systems to explore more locations across the surface than was ever thought possible. This time, when we go to the Moon, we will stay. And then we will use what we learn on the Moon to take the next giant leap — sending astronauts to Mars."

Artemis Generation: NASA emphasizes role of women as it prepares for a return to the moon

Artemis Generation: NASA emphasizes role of women as it prepares for a return to the moon The male-dominated culture of the early space program is giving way to a more gender-balanced one thanks in part to NASA's diverse astronaut pool.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted that the Artemis mission would be the first time a woman walks on the moon , something Vice President Mike Pence had alluded to in March. That same month, NASA scrapped plans for the first all-female spacewalk because of a spacesuit sizing issue.

NASA wants you to come up with a way to send heavy stuff to the Moon.
The NASA of today is a whole lot different than the agency that first sent humans to the Moon. While those projects were almost entirely in-house, today's NASA relies heavily on commercial partners large and small to make its missions happen.
