NASA has already identified where the astronauts will land on the Moon. NASA has not launched a rocket to take astronauts to the Moon, nor has it selected a crew that will study the Moon’s surface under its Artemis Program. The Moons surface under its Artemis Program. Yesterday, NASA announced it is targeting sending a crew orbiting the Moon, Apollo-style, in May 2024, then landing astronauts on the surface, Apollo-style, sometime in 2025. NASA hopes to get Americans back to the Moon on the third or fourth trip, probably at least three years from now – possibly recapturing some of the magic that became the signature of NASA’s glory days. Exploring the moon may still seem like a fantasy to some people, but NASA has worked hard to take its first step toward building its first moon base in Space.
NASA hopes to land the first humans on Mars by the 2030s — and a handful of new missions are being launched ahead of that time to accelerate the search. The first human-crewed lunar landing mission in about 50 years is planned to take place as soon as 2025, which would likely mark the first human-crewed landing on the Moon since the last Apollo mission in 1972. Its inaugural Artemis mission would be followed by a four-astronaut flight that would circle the Moon through 2024 but would not land. On Friday, NASA revealed it had selected 13 potential areas on the lunar south pole, with ice within completely shaded craters. Moreover, On Thursday, 9th June 2022, Paul K Martin, NASA’s inspector general, said that the second version of the mobile launcher is needed to lodge a taller version of the rocket. It was a far cry from the territory explored by Neil Armstrong and various Apollo astronauts.
NASA announced Friday that it had chosen 13 possible areas at the Moon’s the South Pole, where there is ice in the completely shadowed craters. It is a great distance from the territory explored by Neil Armstrong and the different Apollo astronauts, the South Pole of the Moon Apollo. NASA has already announced NASA is leaving for the return to the Moon’s south pole. Still, these particular sites, all within a group of six degrees latitude to the south pole, were chosen because they offer safe landing sites close enough to permanently shadowed areas that crews could remain as part of their missions.
NASA has shared pictures of the “ Enchanted Lake” on Mars, a sedimentary rock, making it a perfect spot to look for signs of early life on Mars. According to NASA, specific locations, all in the 6 degrees latitude band of the South Pole, were chosen for being permanently shaded to allow crews to perform lunar activities as part of their missions. At Friday’s briefing, NASA officials said they decided on the landing sites using data from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter – a robotic spacecraft mapping the Moon’s surface since 2009 – and from other moon studies.
Its new administrator, James E. Webb, told his vice-president there was no chance to beat the Soviets to a space station, and there was uncertainty about whether NASA could orbit the Moon first, so attempting to land the crewed vehicle on the Moon was the best choice. After more than 50 years of going into space, NASA selects next-generation space suits for Artemis moon missions and the International Space station.
