“We are proud to be part of a very limited number of countries participating in the Artemis Accords, which will be the largest project in the field of space exploration. Going back centuries, people like Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus paved the way for new worlds. Artemis is one of those programs that will pave the way for the future. The world will enjoy the fruits of Artemis for decades,” Uri Oron said.

Oron said he expects Israel to expand its joint efforts with NASA in the coming months and years of agreements.

The Artemis Accords, initiated by NASA and the US State Department, were created to establish a set of guidelines for excellence in the exploration and use of the Moon, Mars and other space objects. The agreements have already been signed by 15 space agencies around the world.
