Artemis II Crew Visits White House

Four astronauts, wearing blue jackets and black pants, pose for a photo at the White House in front of decorations like trees, wreaths, and boughs. The astronauts, members of the Artemis II mission, have their arms around each other's shoulders. Behind them are two flags, and a seal high on the wall that reads "Seal of the President of the United States."

The crew will travel aboard NASA’s Orion spacecraft on a 10-day mission around the Moon, testing spacecraft systems for the first time with astronauts for long-term exploration and scientific discovery.
