What’s in your #NASAMoonKit?


Steps are being taken to land the first woman and the next man on the Moon, and we want to know: what would you pack for a trip to the Moon?   

We will be conducting our last in a series of Green Run tests for the core stage of our Space Launch System (SLS) — the most powerful rocket ever built.  

The series of tests is designed to gradually bring the rocket stage and all its systems to life for the first time. The Green Run test campaign will validate the SLS core stage design and ensure it’s ready for missions to the Moon through the agency’s Artemis program.  

This is a critical time in the history of American spaceflight as NASA will land the first woman and next man on the Moon in 2024.

Excited too? Share your excitement by thinking about what you would pack for the Moon! What can’t you leave the planet without? Is it your camera? Your drawing pad? Or maybe your musical instrument? How would you organize everything you need for your next giant leap?  

Show us what’s in your suitcase with the hashtag #NASAMoonKit!  

Expert Mode: Realistically, astronauts have pretty tight constraints when it comes to their “personal preference kit.” Each astronaut is allowed a 5” by 8” by 2” (12.7 cm x 20.32 cm x 5.08 cm) volume when they travel to the International Space Station. Try to make your #NASAMoonKit fit into this tight space and show us how you did it with a picture or video!
