‘Artemis Generation’: NASA will launch the first manned rocket to the Moon since 1972 | POT

For the first time in 50 years, NASA plans to launch the first rocket on Monday that can carry humans to and from the moon.

The giant Space Launch System (SLS) rocket is scheduled to lift off from NASA’s Cape Canaveral complex, Florida, at 8:33 a.m. ET. beyond.

The 1.3 million-mile Artemis I test mission, scheduled to last 42 days, aims to take the Orion rover 40,000 miles beyond the far side of the moon, starting from the same facility that hosted the Apollo lunar missions ago. half century.

NASA’s space shuttle program in the middle launched manned missions orbiting the earth in relatively close outer space before its discontinuation in 2011. Since then, private US space companies such as Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin and Elon Musk’s SpaceX have performed missions similar to the shuttle program. But Artemis I’s job is to start telling NASA if the moon can act as a springboard to eventually send astronauts to Mars, which would really bring science fiction to life.

US taxpayers are expected to put up $93 billion to fund the Artemis program. But in the days leading up to Monday’s launch, NASA administrators insisted that Americans would find the cost justified.

“This is now the Artemis generation,” NASA administrator and former space shuttle astronaut Bill Nelson said recently. “We were in the Apollo generation. This is a new generation. This is a new kind of astronaut.”

For Monday’s debut, the only “crew members” aboard Orion are dummies meant to allow NASA to test its next-generation spacesuits and radiation levels, as well as a Snoopy soft toy meant to illustrate gravity. zero floating around the capsule.
