We named the Artemis Project after the goddess Artemis because, in ancient Greek mythology, She is the moon. Her twin brother Apollo, namesake of the first manned lunar landing program, is the sun.

Scholarly treatment of ancient mythology is beyond the scope of the Artemis Project. Our goal is to establish a permanent, self-supporting community on the moon, not to resurrect a five-thousand-year-old religion; however, symbols are important, so in this section of the Artemis Data Book we attempt to document the story of the goddess Artemis based on Her position in the ever-changing pantheon.
