We're off to the Moon, again !
It has been 50 years since humankind last visited the Moon (Apollo 17: Dec 7-12, 1972). Artemis 1 is now on its way there - as a test flight for a return to visit to our celestial neighbor.
The presentation will take a look back at the Apollo 17 mission and a leap forward or an overview of the Artemis mission program.
The presentation will be rebroadcasted on TAWBAS's YouTube Channel
