NASA to discuss Artemis moon lander plan for astronauts today. How to listen online.

Nearly a year ago, NASA picked its next moon ship to land astronauts on the lunar surface: SpaceX’s Starship. Today, the U.S. space agency will provide an update on its Artemis program moon lander plan and you’ll be able to listen to it live online. 

NASA will hold a press teleconference at 3:30 p.m. EDT (1930 GMT) to “provide an update on the agency’s goals to transport astronauts from lunar orbit to the surface of the Moon under Artemis,” agency officials wrote in a statement. You’ll be able to listen to that briefing live on this page, as well as directly from NASA here.

“Astronaut Moon landers are a vital part of NASA’s deep space exploration plans, along with the Space Launch System rocket, Orion spacecraft, ground systems, and Gateway,” NASA wrote in the statement. “NASA is committed to using commercial landers to carry astronauts to the surface of the Moon, expanding exploration and preparing humanity for the next giant leap, human exploration of Mars.”
