Libby Jackson: UK Goes to the Moon

The UK is heading back to the Moon!

We are living in an exciting, once in a generation time when the direction of space exploration is shifting gears. The world space agencies are building spacecraft that will send humans out beyond the confines of Low Earth Orbit for the first time since the end of the Apollo lunar missions in 1972 and have plans for much more. The UK, through our membership of the European Space Agency, will be a part of these exciting missions, but it is not the first time that we have sent missions to the Moon.

Libby Jackson, the UK Space Agency’s Human Exploration Programme Manager, shared the amazing details of our lunar story - past achievements, current activities and the plans for the next decades.
