Watch Now! Artemis Missions & Astronauts’ Experiences in Space

What is it like for astronauts traveling beyond Earth's orbit? How about on Mars?

Join us for recorded firsthand astronaut descriptions, to learn about the Orion spaceship and the Gateway space station, and to discover what our Mars rovers and landers tell us about what it will be like for a human on Mars!

Presented by NASA Solar System Ambassador Jennifer German, who is a former lead software engineer, a current medical student, mother of two, and a hopeless space geek. 

Recorded Feb. 20, 2024.
