THE ARTEMIS TEAM
NASA has named its effort to return to the Moon and journey to Mars “Artemis.” Mythology tells us that Artemis was the sister of Apollo, the Goddess of the Moon and the Goddess of the hunt. In my view she was not the demur type needing to be rescued so I wanted to convey that strength and power in this design.
On December 9, 2020 NASA announced the ARTEMIS TEAM: 18 astronauts who will be begin training for Artemis Missions to the Moon including the next man and first woman to walk on the Moon.
I knew a larger patch including those names was warranted.
Behind Artemis is the Moon but as you can see she is looking forward and aiming her arrow (the SLS) towards the future.
