What’s Next For NASA’s Artemis Mission To Put Man Back On The Moon?

Artemis 1 – the first stage of NASA’s mission to put humans back on the moon – was a success.

NASA’s Orion crew module tumbled through the Earth’s atmosphere at speeds of over 40,000 km/h on Sunday, December 11, before landing safely in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico. 

Artemis I is the first in a series of increasingly complex missions that will enable human exploration to the Moon and Mars – but there’s a long way to go yet.

Dr Sophie Calabretto spoke to  Cosmos Magazine journalist Matthew Agius on The Science Briefing about what the Artemis 1 spacecraft did while it was up there, what we’ve learnt so far and what comes next for NASA’s boldest lunar mission to date.
