It’s been 50 years since humankind set foot on the Moon, and now there is a great deal of interest in returning to the Moon. The NASA Artemis missions are a series of human-crewed trips to start building a space platform that will orbit the Moon, and a permanently inhabited base on the Moon. This lecture will highlight the Artemis missions and the plan to learn about living on the Moon as a stepping stone to get to Mars, to develop our understanding and experience of how we humans can exist elsewhere in the Solar System.
