Artemis I Mission

Artemis I Mission:

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is about to launch its Artemis Program.

  • Artemis I is an uncrewed mission of NASA.
  • It will test the agency’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion crew capsule.
  • Artemis I will be the first in a series of increasingly complex missions to build a long-term human presence at the Moon for decades to come.
  • The primary goals for Artemis I are to demonstrate Orion’s systems in a spaceflight environment and ensure a safe re-entry, descent, splashdown, and recovery prior to the first flight with crew on Artemis II.
  • Artemis I launch :The SLS rocket and Orion spacecraft have completed their journey from their assembly building to Launch Complex 39B at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.
  • At launch, the rocket will produce a maximum of more than 3.9 million kilograms of thrust from its four RS-25 engines and five-segment boosters.
  • Shortly after launch, the boosters, service module and launch abort systems will be offloaded.
  • Then, the core stage engines will be shut down and the core stage will separate from the spacecraft.
