At NASA’s Kennedy space center in Florida, engineers assembled the first segment for the rocket. They will have a total of ten segments when the spacecraft is finished. The rocket is expected to take a woman and a man to the moon sometime before 2024. This rocket is a part of the Artemis mission which hopes to go to mars after the moon mission.

The Artemis rocket will launch two test flights with no astronauts next year. After that, the Artemis II will send astronauts on board before the final mission that will send them to the moon. NASA has not sent an astronaut to the moon science 1972.
