DESCRIPTION:

2024 will see a new race to the Moon, focusing on space and Earth's only natural satellite. On July 14, 2023, India launched Chandrayaan-3, which successfully landed on the Moon's South Pole making India the fourth nation, behind the US, Russia, and China, to successfully land on the Moon.

On August 11, 2023, Russia launched Luna 25, an unmanned lunar spaceship set to explore the Moon's surface for water. The last such touchdown for Russia was on August 18, 1976. If successful, cosmonauts may follow. Only one nation, the United States, has ever landed people on the Moon. Unfortunately, the Luna 25 exploded in August, leaving a 10 meter crater on the moon during its landing.

China and the European Union have robust space programs. Italy, Japan, France, Australia, Brazil, Iran, Israel, Kenya, South Korea, North Korea, and Ukraine all have active space programs that have conducted launches. The African Union is creating a space program based on its Vision 2063 objectives. The European Union, Italy, Japan, and India have active space probe programs, bringing us to 2024 and the United States.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has stated it will launch a new manned expedition to the Moon as early as Fall 2024. Artemis II will circle the satellite with three men and a woman aboard. Artemis III will launch in 2025 and be the first manned spaceship to land on the Moon since Apollo 17 in 1972. It will explore the South Pole region, an area in the dark that has never been seen or touched by man for billions of years.

Though not an official year with NASA, the activity ahead of the event and focus on landing on the Moon make 2024 the Year of the Second Race for the Moon. 2025 will be the Year of the Moon Landing, with the first woman in history stepping on the surface.
