NASA’s long-awaited Artemis 1 mission has finally taken off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA, after months of setbacks and delays. It is the first step in a big plan to use the most powerful rockets ever made to send astronauts to the Moon.
NASA says, The first Artemis launch is uncrewed, but the Orion spacecraft will go to the Moon, circle it, and then come back to Earth. In May 2024, Artemis 2 will come next, and this time it will have a crew.
The mission is the first step toward building the habitable Lunar Gateway in space. It also aims to use Artemis 3 to send people back to the Moon in 2025, which is a tentative date.
In 2027, Artemis 4 will try to send four astronauts to the Lunar Gateway to set up a space station that will circle the Moon. In the long run, it is hoped that the Lunar Gateway will be the starting point for a crewed mission to Mars. It will also help with lunar exploration in the short term.
