Artemis 1 will also carry a set of 10 CubeSats that will deploy on various missions, studying the sun, the moon, and even near-Earth asteroids.
Cubesats are relatively small types of spacecraft that are starting to move out into the solar system after decades of service at Earth for observation, telecommunications, and other purposes.
Most of the little spacecraft will be dedicated to lunar exploration, but a couple have different missions. A very distinctive one is NEA Scout, which will instead spend two years on a journey to a target asteroid.
