NASA: Artemis I We are going back to the moon Artemis I Wow, we are going back to the moon 5 days from now (from this post)! I wasn't born in time to be alive during the last moonshots, but now I will be. I don't have the level of excitement that I saw in the eyes of the people from news coverage of the old days. But, I do think it will be interesting to follow along as NASA tests the platform first and then later finally sends people back to the moon. I am personally surprised that the next launch is only a handful of days from now. The date, it sort of snuck up on me. I always knew we were going to go back to the moon. They've been laying out plans for decades, but I wasn't following them recently which is why I am surprised that it's only a few days away.
