50 years ago we landed on the moon. We've established a space station and flown astronauts and guests to live there. Private industries have created reusable space delivery systems.  What's next?

This week, what's next (Artemis 1) was set to launch.  It is a new lift-off rocket (SLS - Space Launch System rocket) and a new crew and cargo module (Orion) into orbit. Artemis 1 will travel thousands of miles further from the Earth than has ever been flown before.

In this activity, students try to decipher several graphics that explain the flight path of the Artemis mission and make comparisons about what has been accomplished before.
