In this article NASA breaks down the important roles students and recent grads like Katrina “Kat” Ternus, Jenny Gil Acevedo, Justin Borrero, Melissa Venedicto, Shayne Tyrell and Aidan Fleming, are playing in lunar exploration:
Artemis I launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Wednesday, Nov. 16, the uncrewed Artemis I mission will be the first integrated flight of the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft. This first in a series of increasingly complex missions will carry Orion around the Moon, paving the way for astronauts – including the first woman and person of color—to step onto the lunar surface.
This new era in human exploration has had the help of students who lend their efforts to make future lunar exploration a reality.
