NASA Artemis 1 ready for lunch to the moon, know how to watch the Artemis 1 launch live telecast

Washington: After almost 50 years, the American space agency NASA is ready to send man back to the moon. The crew will be the first woman to set foot on the moon and this time will also include a female astronaut. The first step will take place on Monday. NASA has named the mission Artemis, and the first part of it will be launched on August 29. Artemis 1 will be the first test flight of the agency’s new Space Launch System Megarocket and the Orion crew capsule. The SLS rocket will launch the uncrewed Orion spacecraft on a 42-day mission. It orbits the Moon before returning to Earth during the mission. Artemis 1 will be launched on August 29 at 6:03 PM IST. This probe will go to the moon, land some small satellites in orbit and put itself into orbit. Under this mission, NASA will be trained to operate the spacecraft, investigate conditions around the moon experienced by the astronauts, and ensure the safe return of the astronauts.

Enormous power in the new space launch system

Jack Burns, a professor at the University of Colorado Boulder, an astronaut and a former member of NASA’s Presidential Transition Team, explained the Artemis-1 mission in detail. This will be the first flight of the Space Launch System, he said. According to NASA, it is a ‘heavy lift’ rocket with more powerful engines than any rocket sent into space so far. This rocket is more powerful than the rockets of the Apollo missions that took man to the moon in the 1960s and 1970s. It is a completely new type of rocket system, as its main engine is composed of oxygen and hydrogen systems, and two rocket boosters are attached. The Artemis-1 mission is important because it will give scientists a chance to see the capabilities of the Orion crew capsule. For about a month in the highly irradiated lunar space environment, the capsule will have a real test. (Photo: Twitter)

‘Full Dress Rehearsal’ of Artemis Spacecraft

The capsule will also feature a thermal shield capability that protects the capsule and its occupants from friction-induced heat as it returns to Earth at 25,000 mph. This will be the fastest capsule since Apollo, so it’s important that the heat shield works properly. The mission will also pick up several small moons, which will always keep an eye on the moon’s dark craters, which scientists believe contain water. Simply put, the mission is a ‘full dress rehearsal’ for NASA’s ambitious mission, the Artemis spacecraft, under which it will send humans to the moon. The big question on everyone’s mind is how is this mission different from Apollo 50 years ago and what are the challenges we face now?

How different is Artemis from Apollo?

The Apollo mission was conceived to defeat the Soviet Union rather than ‘space exploration’. Unlike Artemis, Apollo was not intended to search for water or probe a permanent base on the moon. Instead, the mission was launched solely to put America first in the space race. But after 50 years, things have changed a lot. Now scientists’ goals are different, so their challenges are different. Now the US does not want to leave Russia or China, but to build a base to start permanent research outside the Earth. This foundation will open the door to a far-reaching mission that will one day even allow humans to set foot on Mars. (Photo: Twitter)

Watch the launch on NASA’s official website

Artemis-3 will be the first human to reach the moon. The crew may include a woman and possibly a black passenger. Currently, the countdown to the launch of Artemis-1 has begun, rocketing from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Live streaming of this launch can be seen on NASA’s official website. “This is the first flight of a new rocket and a new spacecraft,” Jim Frey, associate administrator for NASA’s Exploration Systems Development, said at an Aug. 22 news conference. There are some risks involved in test flying.
