NASA announces a trip to the moon starting August 29 – 20/7/2022 – science

The Artemis 1The first unmanned mission returns to the United States the moonmust take off from August 29, announced this Wednesday (20) agency US spacecraft (NASA).

Thus, the spacecraft will make its first series of flights using it United State Intend to return to the Moon with a human crew, establish a permanent presence there, and use the experience gained to plan Journey to Mars Sometime in the 1930s.

The first window for possible launch dates for the massive space launch system (SLS) and Orion capsule that docked is August 29, September 2 and September 5, NASA official Jim Frey said.

You are The tests conducted last June reached 90% of the targets On Wednesday, Cliff Lanham, head of the spacecraft division, said engineers had fixed the holes that were causing the launch system to lose hydrogen.

Artemis 1 will travel around the far side of the Moon on a mission that will last four to six weeks, longer than any manned spacecraft has ever done without docking. After that, you will return to Earth faster and will be exposed to more heat than all previous ships. It will also work on placing small satellites, called CubeSats, aimed at developing space experiments.

“Our first and most important goal is to expose Orion’s heat shield to lunar recovery conditions,” said Mike Sarafin, mission chief. On its return, the capsule will travel at about 39,400 km/h and experience temperatures nearly half as hot as the sun.

The second goal is to check the solvency of the missile and the flight of the capsule during the mission. Finally, NASA will attempt to recover Orion after it has landed, and then retract it deeply.

The next flight will be Artemis 2, which will be operational, but the astronauts will not leave the spacecraft. In turn, Artemis 3 will later bring the first woman and first black person to the lunar soil.
