Artemis Systems Are Ready To Fly Astronauts to the Moon


Published on: March 13, 2023,

The Artemis program is a robotic and human Moon exploration led by United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration along with three partner agencies. Artemis systems are ready to fly astronauts. After extensively reviewing data since last year’s successful unscrewed Artemis I flight test around the moon NASA has confirmed initial observations that agency’s space launch system rocket, Orion spacecraft and ground systems are ready to fly astronauts on missions to the Moon with Artemis II astronauts crew around the Moon and back.


On March 8, engineers at NASA’s Stennis space center conducted this year’s third hot ire test in the current test series to certify the re designed RS- 25 rocket engines. Four of the engines will help power NASA’s space launch system rocket on future Artemis missions to the Moon. Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff, ANSA astronaut Yvonne Cagle and NASA Ames center director Eugene Tuy joined students and their families at Oakland, California educational event hosted in honor of Women’s month. The STEM activities aim to inspire the students to learn about NASA’s Artmeis Program.


Also, NASA’s imaging X-Ray Polarimetry Explorer has captured the light blue color of new image of pulsar wind nebula on the constellation Vela. The light blue represents the first ever X ray polarization data for Vela. The pulsar itself is near the center of the image. Measuring polarization could improve our understanding of how cosmic objects like pulsars accelerate particles to high speeds.
