Jeremy Hansen: Artemis 2 Canadian astronaut will fly around the moon
Jeremy Hansen will be the first non-American to leave low Earth orbit on a moon mission.
Jeremy Hansen is a Canadian space astronaut scheduled to fly around the moon.
Hansen the mission specialist aboard Artemis 2, is expected to start his 10-day mission in November 2024. Flying with Hansen on the moon mission will be three NASA astronauts: commander Reid Wiseman, pilot Victor Glover, and mission specialist Christina Koch.
Artemis 2 will be the first spaceflight for Hansen, who is a Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut. But Hansen is highly experienced in other matters. His career experience includes piloting fighter jets for NORAD, mentoring an astronaut class and working in the top echelons of Canadian space policy.
