Push your name over 384,000 km above our heads to fly over the moon. This is what NASA presents to the public. The Artemis mission, led by the US space agency, plans to send women and men into orbit around the moon and on its surface. The first part of that mission should begin in June despite another postponement of the general take-off exercise, which was announced on Wednesday, April 6.
For this first part, called Artemis I, the flight will be unmanned. But NASA is giving everyone the opportunity to write their name on the hard disk that will be aboard the Orion capsule that will be propelled to the moon, where it will be put into orbit before returning to Earth. All you have to do is go to Artemis mission site (in English), To indicate the first and last name, then a code consisting of 4 to 7 digits. Once the process is complete, a token boarding pass is generated. It mentions in particular the ID entered, “Artemis 1”, the launch site (Kennedy Space Center in Florida), the destination site (lunar orbit), the machine used for liftoff (NASA’s new giant rocket, nicknamed SLS) and the capsule (Orion).

The Artemis I mission must follow the Artemis II and Artemis III missions. The second part will include a manned test flight without landing on the moon. During the third part, which should not happen before 2025 according to the most optimistic estimates, the first woman and first person of color should set foot on lunar soil, at the satellite’s south pole. The last time humans walked on the moon was in 1972, during the Apollo 17 mission.
