How Artemis Landing Is Different From The Apollo Landing?
NASA is deciding where the rocket will land and park on the lunar surface.
In the recent updates NASA has picked 13 landing sites on the South pole of the Moon.
NASA has marked potential spots where astronauts could land for it’s Moon mission in 2026.
These areas were picked using the data from LRO or the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter
These parking spots are about 10 by 10 miles.
The LRO was landed on Moon on 2009 and has been gathering intel.
"Apollo landing sites were in the sort of central part of the near side, and now we're going someplace completely different, in different and ancient geologic terrain," Sarah Noble, Artemis lunar science lead explained.
