Celebrate our first steps back to the Moon!

In Artemis I, the most powerful rocket in the world takes flight, leading the way for humanity’s return to the Moon. To mark this summer’s historic launch, NASA’s Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley is taking over Chabot Space & Science Center with a day of hands-on learning. Get ready to explore NASA’s next big mission with a new rover model unveiling, interactive activities, conversations with NASA scientists and technology from Ames.


See a scale model of NASA’s Artemis lunar rover, the Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover, or VIPER. Launching in 2023, this rover is heading to the Moon’s South Pole in search of ice and other potential resources. Its 100-day mission will answer big questions about lunar water and how it can be used for future human space exploration.
