NASA’s Artemis mission that will send the first woman and next man to the moon will not land on the lunar surface until 2025.

The rescheduled date was announced Tuesday during a live update from the American space agency.

During the live briefing, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said the crewed test flight of Origin and SLS on Artemis II are now targeting May 2024 – thus pushing the lunar landing to the following year.

Nelson says ‘we’ve lost nearly seven months in litigation’ with Blue Origin suing NASA for choosing SpaceX to build its lunar lander, along with an increase in costs that are necessary for developing crafts crucial for the missions.
