The teleconference participants are:

 

- NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine

- NASA Deputy Administrator Jim Morhard

- Doug Loverro, associate administrator of NASA's Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate

- Lisa Watson-Morgan, HLS program manager

- Tyler Cochran, HLS contracting officer

To participate in the teleconference, media should email their name and affiliation to Gina Anderson at gina.n.anderson@nasa.gov by 10 a.m. April 30.

 

The Artemis program encompasses NASA's overall lunar exploration plans. The first in a series of increasingly complex missions, Artemis I will be an uncrewed flight test of NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft, followed by the first flight with crew on Artemis II, and then the Artemis III flight to land crew on the Moon using a new human landing system. NASA will use its experiences on and around the Moon to prepare for humanity's next giant leap ? human exploration of Mars.
