NASA’s next moon program Artemis takes flight next week. What sets this program apart from the Apollo missions?
In less than a week, NASA plans to launch its Artemis I mission on an uncrewed flight around the moon and back.

But this mission is much different than NASA’s last moonshot. We’ll speak with University of Central Florida history professor Amy Foster about the differences in the programs.
