The Center of Cosmology and Astrophysics of the Alikhanyan National Science Laboratory ( Physics Institute) has sent a white paper to the American Artemis program, the center’s head, Professor Vahagn Gyurzadyan told a press conference at Armenpress press center.

With the Artemis program, NASA will land the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024, using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before.

The program collaborates with commercial and international partners to establish sustainable exploration by the end of the decade. It will then use what they learn on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap – sending astronauts to Mars.
