Japanese Astronaut to be First Non-American to Set Foot on Moon

President Joe Biden revealed an exciting announcement that a Japanese astronaut will make history by becoming the first non-American to step on the moon. This momentous opportunity will take place during an upcoming NASA Artemis mission.
