NASA on Wednesday is scheduled to unveil spacesuits to be used by astronauts during the upcoming Artemis III mission, which will mark humans’ long-awaited return to the moon.

The moon mission spacesuits revealed Wednesday are prototypes, NASA notes, but they could offer a glimpse at what space travelers might wear on the Artemis III mission that’s currently set for 2025. 

The landmark mission also hopes to accomplish a couple feats that have never been done before: landing a woman on the moon, and exploring the lunar south pole. 

The Artemis mission kicked off in late 2022 with the launch and splashdown of an empty capsule. Up next is a crewed launch, Artemis II, which is scheduled to send four astronauts into orbit around the moon.
