NASA has released a video giving a sneak peek into what the Artemis Three mission could be like. From initial launch to landing on the moon’s surface, the program aims to send humans back to the moon and establish a sustainable presence on the lunar surface by the end of the decade. The video suggests that the mission will take place in 2024, and will involve a crew that stays on the surface for approximately six to seven days. They will conduct experiments, collect samples, and potentially work on building a lunar base. The video also shows a potential astronaut habitat and details about the landing and ascent vehicles. NASA is currently working on developing the different components needed for the mission, including the Space Launch System rocket, the Orion spacecraft, and the Human Landing System.
