The past year has been a big hit for space missions. Now that we’re official in 2021, NASA is looking forward to a busy schedule of space exploration as it aims at the moon, Mars, and beyond. The space agency has released a video showing its plans for the new year, and the moon is the star of the show.

The first major test of the SLS and Orion spacecraft is in the works for 2021 with Artemis I, but we have to wait and see if the unmanned mission is capable of launching this year after all.

Other NASA goals for 2021 are on track. The Rover perseverance Everything is ready to land on Mars on February 18th.
