Is there a better friend of the earth than our dear moon? Humans around the world have concocted mythological creatures relating to the moon in folklore: werewolves from Ancient Greece, selkies from Scotland and Ireland, the moon rabbit from China, and the moon hare from Japan. There is an exhaustive Wikipedia page devoted to a list of lunar deities. The moon pulls on our ocean tides and our heartstrings. Humans adore the moon.
Celebrate the moon on January 17, and hear from Mike Cortright, NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, as he reviews the history of the Apollo program and explains the plans and details of the NASA Artemis program. This is a new space program that will return us to the surface of the moon and beyond. Register here!
