**New issues will begin just prior to launch and follow mission milestones from launch through splashdown.**The Artemis I mission will send an uncrewed Orion spacecraft thousands of miles beyond the Moon - farther than any spacecraft built for humans has ever flown. Sign-up to receive real-time updates and bonus content at the time of the Artemis I launch and mission.
As NASA sets its sights on exploring the Moon through Artemis and prepares for Artemis I, the first mission of the Space Launch System rocket and the Orion spacecraft around the Moon, the agency is partnering and collaborating with outside organizations to inspire young people and enable a range of generations to connect to space exploration.
“Collaborating with organizations outside of NASA gives us an opportunity to reach audiences in new ways,” said NASA Deputy Administrator Pam Melroy. “NASA missions and the work we’re doing to explore space are tools we can use to inspire many people around the world. Working with organizations beyond NASA helps us take that inspiration to people in their communities and help them understand how our work touches their lives.”
Are you interested in trajectory design in cislunar space? Learn how trajectory design works in the Earth-Moon system and multi-body gravity fields in this series of free, online modules. This self-paced course is designed for participants who have taken an undergraduate orbital mechanics class but have little or no experience with gravitational multi-body dynamics.
NASA and the Girl Scouts of the USA have long worked together to inspire girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. The two organizations have extended their relationship to the Moon, using Artemis content and missions to engage and inspire students across the United States.
NASA will fly several Girl Scout space science badges on Artemis I, the first uncrewed test flight of the agency’s Orion spacecraft and Space Launch System rocket to the Moon. Badges are earned by Girl Scouts when participants learn a new skill and are used to recognize their accomplishments.
NASA is committed to landing American astronauts, including the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon under the Artemis program. Through the agency’s Artemis lunar exploration program, we will use innovative new technologies and systems to explore more of the Moon than ever before.
The Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft are designed to send humans to deep space as the backbone for America’s Moon to Mars exploration approach.
