NASA and a coalition of international partners will travel to the Moon through the Artemis initiative to learn how to live in other worlds for the good of everyone.
NASA will send the first woman and the next man to the moon via the Artemis Missions in 2024 and about once a year thereafter.
Through the efforts of humans and robots, we will explore more of the Moon than ever before; lead a voyage of exploration that benefits our world with life-changing science, use the Moon and its resources as a technology testing ground to go much further, and learn how to create and maintain a human presence far beyond Earth.
