Hey Space Placers!
NASA https://www.nasa.gov/ and Canadian Space Agency(CSA) https://www.asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/ will announce during an event at 11 a.m. EDT (10 a.m. CDT) on Monday, April 3, from NASA Johnson Space Center’s Ellington Field in Houston, the four astronauts who will venture around the Moon. Traveling aboard NASA’s Orion spacecraft during Artemis II, the mission is the first crewed flight test on the agency’s path to establishing a long-term scientific and human presence on the lunar surface.
The event will air on NASA Television, the NASA app, and the agency’s website.
This will be the first crewed mission to the Moon since Apollo 17, which did so in December 1972 https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/apollo/missions/apollo17.html .
Artemis II is currently scheduled for launch November 2024.
Light that candle!
