During the Artemis missions, NASA will land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon and will use innovative technologies to explore even more of the lunar surface. But before a crew can launch on Artemis II, Artemis I, an uncrewed mission,  will help lay the groundwork for human deep space exploration. The Artemis I Orion capsule will travel 280,000 miles from Earth during a 43-day mission. The spacecraft will stay in space longer than any crew-capable vehicle has done without docking to a space station and will return to Earth faster and hotter than ever before.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex celebrates this Next Giant Leap. Join the Journey.
