NASA Virtual STEM Event

Kimberly Robinson,Space Launch System Spacecraft/Payload Integration and Evolution Manager at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama provided an hour of inspirational discussion on the NASA Space Program.

 

NASA is committed to landing American astronauts, including the first woman and the next man, on the Moon by 2024. NASA’s powerful new rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS), will send astronauts aboard the Orion spacecraft nearly a quarter million miles from Earth to lunar orbit. Astronauts will dock Orion at the Gateway and transfer to a human landing system for expeditions to the surface of the Moon. They will return to the orbital outpost to board Orion again before returning safely to Earth.

 

While Mars remains our horizon goal, we have set our sights first on exploring the entire surface of the Moon with human and robotic explorers. NASA will send astronauts to new locations, starting with the lunar South Pole.

 

Artemis was the twin sister of Apollo and goddess of the Moon in Greek mythology. Now, she personifies our path to the Moon as the name of NASA's program to return astronauts to the lunar surface by 2024, including the first woman and the next man. When they land, our American astronauts will step foot where no human has ever been before: the Moon’s South Pole.

 

Thank you for inspiring all girls to be strong , smart and bold!
