What was the main objective of the Apollo 11 mission?
The primary objective of Apollo 11 was to complete a national goal set by President John F. Kennedy on May 25, 1961: perform a crewed lunar landing and return to Earth.

What is the Artemis I moon mission?
The Artemis I mission will be the first of its kind in a series of complex missions to widen humanity’s understanding of the Moon. The mission will demonstrate the capabilities and performance of the NASA’s new Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and the Orion spacecraft during a six-week long mission that will see the payload take a 65,000 kilometer journey to the Moon and back.

How much is NASA spending on the Artemis I mission?
The price tag for this single mission exceeds $4 billion. The entire program will have set NASA back $93 billion by the time astronauts are back on the moon.

The primary goal of Artemis I is to thoroughly test the integrated systems before crewed missions by operating the spacecraft in a deep space environment, testing Orion’s heat shield, and recovering the crew module after reentry, descent, and splashdown.

When are astronauts expected to step on the moon again?
There’s a lot more to be done before astronauts step on the moon again. The follow-on Artemis flight, will send four astronauts around the moon and back, perhaps as early as 2024. A landing could follow in 2025. NASA is targeting the moon’s unexplored south pole, where permanently shadowed craters are believed to hold ice that could be used by future crews. “It’s a future where NASA will land the first woman and the first person of color on the moon,” Bill Nelson, the NASA administrator, said during a news conference this month.

What will the Artemis I Moon Mission Pack List Include?
A small piece of moon rock from the Apollo 11 mission will ride along the Artemis I. And, keeping with the Peanuts theme, Artemis I will carry a pen nib used by Schulz. Other fun items in the kit are four Lego minifigures, a 3D-printed statue of the Greek goddess Artemis, various tree and plant seeds and a pebble from the Dead Sea.
