Shaun flies to the Moon with NASA

NASA has announced that the first “astronaut” to fly to the Moon on its Artemis I mission will be … Shaun the Sheep!

Shaun’s journey in the Orion spacecraft will include a lunar flyby, with the Moon’s gravitational pull being used to travel 70,000 km behind the Moon and 500,000 km away from Earth. No man or sheep ever traveled so far!

Weather permitting, Shaun will take off into space from Kennedy Space Center in Florida in October.

Shaun will go down in history as the first sheep in space.
