Big News! The #Artemis generation is going to the Moon to stay. I’m excited to announce that we have selected 3 U.S. companies to develop human landers that will land astronauts on the Moon: @BlueOrigin, @Dynetics & @SpaceX.…
.@BlueOrigin is the prime contractor for the “National Team” that includes @LockheedMartin, @northropgrumman and @DraperLab. The team’s design is a three-stage lander that harnesses the proven spaceflight heritage of each team.
.@Dynetics is working with a robust team of more than 25 subcontractors. Their two-stage lander concept includes a single element with ascent / descent capabilities and a unique crew cabin that sits low to the Moon’s surface.

It's #MythologyMonday and today's theme is WITCHES!
There are two Greek gods who are commonly associated with witchcraft and magic. Most of you will know Hekate as the goddess of witchcraft but Hermes has his sticky fingers in everything, so obviously he dabbles in magic as well.
Illustration of #Hekate by Victoria Francés…
#Hekate is a titan goddess with power over heaven, earth, and sea. Her name means "worker from afar" implying the workings of magic, but her name is also an epithet of #Artemis as one who shoots from afar. In Roman times, Hekate formed the lunar triad of Hekate-Artemis-Selene.

[TREAD] Hier soir, la NASA a dévoilé le logo de sa nouvelle mission vers la Lune, #Artemis. Elle a aussi expliqué les choix derrières le graphisme. On va voir qu'ils sont super pertinents, et que vous aurez de quoi crâner en soirée ⬇️ 1/6
D'abord, Artémis est la déesse grecque de la chasse, sœur jumelle d'Apollon (Apollo en anglais, vous l'avez ?) Le A représente une de ses pointe de flèche et un lancement de fusée. 2/6
La Lune se trouve au sommet du A, mais légèrement décalée : elle n'est pas la destination finale d'Artemis, mais une étape vers plus loin, en l'occurence Mars (sur cet autre visuel, visible en arrière-plan). 3/6

As I've predicted few months ago, NASA has reassigned two top officials in its exploration program, including Bill Gerstenmaier, the longtime head of NASA’s human spaceflight programs
NASA has been given a bold challenge to put the first woman and the next man on the Moon by 2024, with a focus on the ultimate goal of sending humans to Mars.
The White House is very angry with NASA.

After Trump tweeted in June that NASA should be focusing on Mars, not the moon, there are rumors among agency employees that another policy shift is forthcoming, perhaps linked to next week’s 50th anniversary of the moon landings.
