"The Artemis 1 flight will test the design and workmanship of the capsule and its service module during the three-week mission out around the Moon and back".

It was on July 16, 1969 that astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and (the one no-one remembers) Michael Collins were strapped into their spacecraft sitting atop a enormous Saturn V rocket.

A number of netizens emphasized the inclusion of the word "human" in some of the hashtags related to the topic, hailing the 1969 achievement as one for all mankind, while others stressed that the space mission had paved the way for many technological developments that are often taken for granted today.

Vice President Mike Pence announces the Orion crew capsule completion at Kennedy Space Center on Saturday.

Since Pence announced in March that the US would set out to get astronauts on the moon by 2024 instead of 2028, as originally planned, the space agency has been working to accelerate the path to the lunar surface.

The last time humans walked on The Moon was in December 1972 during the Apollo 17 mission.

The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing is this weekend, and NASA has a whole lineup of awesome programming ready for all of us.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), whose district includes NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, also commemorated the Apollo 11 anniversary, saying that when Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, "every border and difference on Earth disappeared, and we were one humankind together".

Nasa marked the anniversary by streaming footage of the launch online, giving a new generation a chance to see the historic moment that was watched by half a billion people 50 years ago, the BBC reported. "In the coming years, American astronauts will return to the moon aboard the Orion", he said.

He spoke about Armstrong and Aldrin running 600 simulations of the Lunar Module landing but still facing an unexpected challenge when an alarm suddenly went off.

In February, Pence demanded the National Aeronautics and Space Administration put new boot prints in the lunar dust within five years.

That same month, Blue Origin unveiled its lander project, Blue Moon.

Artemis 3 will be the mission that will actually execute a manned landing on the moon. After a series of tests, it will first be used on the uncrewed Artemis1 mission.

The issue came up again Friday, when Collins and Aldrin met with the president, vice president and NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine in the Oval Office.

"It would not be at all helpful to be competing for the Moon or Mars, that's very wasteful", he said. "President Trump and Vice President Pence have given us a bold direction to return to the Moon by 2024 and then go forward to Mars".
