News from Aug 22, 2022
NASA Artemis III mission will send humans to the Moon. This will be the first time astronauts set foot on the Moon since the Apollo 17 mission in 1972. 13 candidate landing regions near the lunar South Pole have been identified by NASA. Within each region, there are several potential landing sites with an approximate 100 meter radius. All regions considered are scientifically significant because of their proximity to the lunar South Pole, which is an area that contains permanently shadowed regions rich in resources and in terrain unexplored by humans.
