Meet The Crew Of The Artemis II

I swear I didn’t intend this to be a space news blog but I have to share this historic news, the crew of the first crewed mission to the moon in my lifetime. Meet the astronauts!

Reid Wiseman, Victor Glover, Christina Koch, and Jeremy Hansen will make a trip to the moon and back, although they won’t actually land on it; that’s for missions coming in the very near future.

All four of them appeared on Stephen Colbert’s show last night, and you can watch them get interviewed by a giddily excited Colbert in the following clips.
