NASA's Artemis Project: To the Moon, Mars, and Beyond Reading Challenge

NASA is readying the first mission of the Artemis spaceflight program! In ancient Greek mythology, Artemis was the goddess of the Moon and twin sister to the sun god Apollo. Much like NASA’s Apollo program, which took humans to the Moon in the 1960s and 1970s, the Artemis program will take humans back to the Moon and prepare us for traveling to Mars and beyond for the first time. 


Participants will discover more about the Artemis program and NASA’s plans for a new generation of crewed spaceflight by completing the activity badges in this reading and activity challenge. Review the challenge materials in our help center for more information.


All public libraries in the U.S. are eligible to join and participate for a chance to win backpacks filled with STEM-related materials and a telescope!
