Originally aired on: April 18, 2023
Deputy Administrator Pam Melroy discusses progress toward a blueprint for sustained human exploration throughout the solar system. This presentation was delivered at Space Foundation’s 38th Space Symposium in Colorado Springs.
Through its Artemis program, NASA plans to send humans to the Moon for the first time since 1972, and ultimately establish a permanent presence on the Moon. The first crewed flight, Artemis 2, is planned for launch in November 2024.
“These objectives form the wire frame, as we call it, which connects and advances our goals to move towards humanity’s next frontier,” Melroy said.
Melroy also discussed NASA’s Moon to Mars Strategy and Objectives Development, a blueprint for sustained human presence and exploration throughout the Solar System.
“This is what we have dreamed about for years, decades, maybe even millennia: going out to explore. Because after all, humans are a society of wanderers and explorers,” Melroy said.
