Washington: NASA’s Artemis-1 mission is on its way to an important step in bringing humans back to the Moon after nearly half a century. This mission is scheduled to be launched on 29 August 2022 and is going to be a significant journey for NASA’s Space Launch System and Orion crew capsule.

NASA just rolled a stunning, historic new rocket to the launchpad. It’s not just that the Space Launch System is giant, standing taller than the Statue of Liberty. It’s not just that it features the world’s most powerful rocket stage.

All that power is for a big purpose: This rocket is designed to send astronauts to the moon for the first time in 50 years.

This spacecraft will go to the Moon, will drop some small satellites into orbit and will put itself into orbit. NASA’s aim is to receive training in spacecraft operation and to investigate the conditions experienced by astronauts around the Moon. As well as ensuring that the spacecraft and every space traveler aboard can safely return to Earth.

The Conversation asked Jack Burns, a space scientist and space scientist at the University of Colorado Bold and a former member of NASA’s presidential transition team, to explain the Artemis mission. He was asked what the Artemis program would ensure in the field of space exploration, and how it would reflect the change in the space program after half a century of human footsteps on the Moon.

NASA in a statement said that during Artemis I mission, Orion will travel from Earth to beyond the far side of the Moon. Liftoff from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida is currently targeted for 8:33 a.m. EDT (12:33 UTC) Monday, Aug. 29

NASA Launches Artemis I
-Interestingly, Artemis will start where the last Apollo program left off in 1972 by sending crewed missions to the moon, but in a novel way.

-With the launch of Artemis I, NASA aims to perform operations and test the conditions that astronauts will experience when they travel to the Moon to assure that it is safe for any occupants to stay and then return to Earth.

-According to NASA, the spacecraft will travel to the Moon and deploy small satellites and then will settle into orbit around the lunar surface.

-The rocket is designed to return astronauts to the lunar surface for the first time in more than 50 years.

-It won’t carry astronauts this time, however, if everything goes well, NASA will plan to land boots on the lunar surface in 2025.

-Former US President George Bush had set goals in 2004 to return astronauts to the moon.

-According to plan of George Bush, it should have happened by 2020, maybe as early as 2015. However, some of the delays have been technical.
