iNRCORE Congratulates NASA and Lockheed Martin
NASA announced that Lockheed Martin’s Artemis I Orion spacecraft had completed assembly and passed all required testing for the anticipated Artemis I mission slated for 2021. The spacecraft was then transferred into possession of NASA’s Exploration Ground Systems (EGS) team at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. After final fueling and preparation, the Orion spacecraft will then be moved to NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Facility for final attachment to the SLS booster rocket in preparation for the Artemis I mission which will send the un-crewed Orion Capsule around the Moon and return to Earth. The goal of the Artemis I is to certify the spacecraft for human spaceflight. This would clear the way for the crewed Artemis II mission, landing the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024.
