The second celestial body landed on by an Endoskeleton. Some1Gee first landed on the moon and named it after NASA's Program to go to the Moon by 2024, Artemis.


A grey moon covered with valleys and hills. It is believed to be either the second or third closest moon to the home station at about 34345 km, and was the second to be explored. Its diameter is about 236.6 km[1].

First explored during the Closed Alpha on the 23rd of June, 2020, by Some1Gee. The voyage took 63 hours, and covered an estimated distance of 34,345 km. Some1Gee safely landed his ship, dubbed Snoopy 2 named after the real life Lunar Excursion Module of Apollo 10 that was fired off into interplanetary space after completing it's mission. Some1gee planted a flag and explored Artemis, naming the crater he landed in Endeavor Crater. This marked the first time a moon other than Makara was reached.

Initial Expedition

After the initial moon landing on Elysium, the initial will to land on the moon had died down. Some1gee, nonetheless, pressed forwards making two attempts to get to Artemis, one of which ended with the ship crashing into an asteroid. The operation was public with every leg of the journey being streamed live on twitch.

Named Valleys

Currently, the only named Valley on Artemis is called Endeavour Crater, named after the Space Shuttle and the SpaceX Dragon 2 Capsule that bares its name. It was named by Some1Gee and is the location of the first landing on the Moon.
