Looks Like A "NASA Watch Party" Is A Thing That Students Do

Keith's note: I got this from a long time reader:

"The student chapter at UCCS is hosting a NASA Watch Party on 23 October. All AIAA members are welcome to participate. See more info below. The address for UCCS is 1420 Austin Bluffs Pkwy, Colorado Springs, CO 80918. Info to Columbine Hall: https://events.uccs.edu/columbine_hall_472#.XaXTrOhKiUk

Students will have the ability to ask questions to the panel of speakers: Student questions

MOON TO MARS KEY POINTS

NASA is called to go forward to the Moon and land the first woman and next man on the lunar South Pole by 2024. This initiative is part of a larger plan to build a sustainable presence on the Moon to prepare us for Mars.

The Moon is a stepping stone Mars. Much of the work planned under the Artemis program is applicable to future human exploration of the Red Planet.

Mars is a rich destination for scientific discovery. The Red Planet's formation and evolution are comparable to Earth, and studying it helps us learn more about our own planet's history and future.

Mars remains the horizon goal. By accelerating our lunar activities we will also accelerate our Mars activities, with the goal of landing on the Red Planet in the late 2030s.

ARTEMIS KEY POINTS

Artemis was the twin sister of Apollo and goddess of the Moon in Greek mythology.

Artemis now personifies NASA's path to the Moon. As part of our broader Moon to Mars exploration objective, this program is the umbrella under which our lunar plans will be branded.

With Artemis, we will see the first woman and next man set foot on and explore the Moon by 2024, and establish sustainable exploration by 2028.

NASA will send a suite of science instruments and technology demonstrations via commercial lunar deliveries, and continue to study the Moon ahead of a human return.

With our goal of sending humans to Mars, Artemis is the next significant step in this new era of exploration."
