Archive: Science Update: From Apollo to Artemis: NASA’s Return to the Moon, February 16, 2023

More than 50 years after the Eagle landed at Tranquility Base, NASA has begun its campaign to return astronauts to the surface of our Moon. Named after the mythical twin sister of Apollo, the Artemis program aims to establish a permanent base of operations on the lunar surface and in lunar orbit, all in preparation for sending astronauts further out into our solar system. This foundational outpost promises to provide not only the insight into how humans can survive in deep space, but also the scientific knowledge that will benefit all who call Earth “home.” With the uncrewed Artemis I mission lighting the path forward, NASA now turns its attention to the next chapter: sending the first woman and person of color, as well as the next man, to the Moon.

All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.
