Artemis is the twin sister of Apollo. The Apollo mission made history bringing humanity to the Moon, but now, with the Artemis program, we’re going back. This time around, the astronauts will not exclusively be white men. Artemis will land the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon.
NASA‘s graphic novel follows the first woman on the Moon, and her journey to get there. QR codes and augmented reality allow readers to further explore and learn about NASA’s work.
