NASA Pushes Back Manned Mission to Moon to September 2025

The US space agency NASA has rescheduled its manned Artemis mission to the Moon to September 2025. Artemis space mission will transport the first woman and first person of colour to the moon.

NASA will aim for having launch of Artemis II in September 2025, which will be the first crewed Artemis mission around the Moon, and September 2026 for Artemis III, to land the first astronauts near the lunar South Pole.

Artemis IV, the first mission to the Gateway lunar space station is envisioned for 2028.

Initially, the Artemis II was proposed to take off in 2024.

The new timeline for Artemis III, said NASA, aligns with the updated schedule for Artemis II, which ensures the agency can incorporate lessons learned from Artemis II into the next mission and acknowledges development challenges experienced by NASA’s industry partners.
