Have you ever dreamed of going to outer space? Well, NASA is saving a virtual seat for you! Even better, you also get a boarding pass to commemorate your “trip.” Everyone will be watching the historic Launch Complex 39B, when Orion and the Space Launch System lift off for the first time from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Artemis I will be the first uncrewed flight test of the Space Launch System rocket and the Orion spacecraft. Artemis I will be the first in a series of complex missions to build a long-term human presence at the Moon for years to come. The launch is expected to happen this summer in August.
Fun Fact: Did you know the Moon does not glow on its own? Instead, it reflects the Sun’s light.
To be part of the historic journey, you can have your name included on a flash drive that will fly aboard Artemis I. Plus, you get a virtual boarding pass to download and print — perfect for a school project, scrapbook or just to pin on the fridge for a few weeks.
Little space enthusiasts will especially love this virtual adventure. The program just might be a launching pad for little ones to learn more about the moon and space travel.
