1st Artemis spacesuits to be worn on the moon won’t return to Earth

The historic spacesuits worn by the first woman and next American astronaut to walk on the moon will be abandoned on a SpaceX lunar lander rather than being returned to Earth for reuse or display in a museum.

Axiom Space, the Houston-based space services company selected by NASA to design, build and supply the spacesuits for 2025 Artemis 3 moon landing mission, unveiled a prototype of her moon outfit (opens in a new tab) during a press conference at Space Center Houston on Wednesday, March 15. Axiom President and CEO Michael Suffredini and Mark Greeley, the company’s Program Manager for Extravehicular Activities, spoke on the fate of the Artemis 3 space suits (opens in a new tab) in a brief interview.
