Canada signs deal to send first astronaut on U.S. mission around the moon
Artemis is designed to send several missions to the Moon. The Canadian astronaut - who has yet to be named - will take part in the second trip, which is scheduled to fly around the moon on a 10-day journey in 2023.
“All eyes will look to the sky as one of our astronauts becomes the first Canadian to travel around the moon,” Bains told a news conference. ■
