NASA is in the process of making the Artemis Program reality. The Artemis Program is like the Appolo missions, but better. This time NASA plans on creating a moon base. Currently, NASA plans on sending four inside of the Shackelton Crater. The Shackelton Crater is a prime target for human exploration. The crater may be rich in ice and Shackleton, is more than 12 miles wide and 2 miles deep which, is as deep as some oceans on Earth. The Shackleton crater is located on the moon's south pole & The Artemis Base Camp itself would be on the lunar surface. Artemis Base Camp will have a capacity of four astronauts. Astronauts will stay at the camp perhaps for a week.
In the long term, the moon base will require infrastructure for power, waste disposal, and communications, as well as radiation protection
