Apollo to Artemis: Comparing Giants

In a 2019 article titled, Fly Me To The Moon: Artemis vs Apollo“, author James Maynard wrote, “When NASA astronauts return to the Moon in 2024, they will fly on ideas from Apollo, combined with next-generation technology impossible to achieve five decades ago”.


There are a lot of similarities and differences between the two NASA programs. In this activity, come up with a creative way to compare and contrast the Apollo Program to the Artemis Program. No typical Venn Diagrams here! We want to see how creative you can get with your comparisons. Use Maynard’s article to help you compare everything from the crews, to the rockets and even to the names of the programs themselves! Snap a photo of your creative or artistic comparisons and submit!
