About the future of moon missions

Looks like the Artemis vehicle had some issues with its heat shield that need to be resolved. 

What continues to surprise and amaze me is that the old world NASA contractors are relying on what was learned during the Apollo missions, and trying to extend on those things. 

But technology has advanced significantly during those 50 years, but they're not really using those advancements "smartly"

To be fair, it's not that they're using technology from 50 years ago, it's more that they are using concepts learned from that era, rather than trying new things.
