After a complex start and many cancellations due to errors and weather conditions, the Artemis I mission went off into outer space. It’s been 11 days since its takeoff and every day it gets closer to its goal: the orbit of the Moon.
Artemis I is the first essay that the POT to send manned missions to the Moon in the immediate future. The SLS rocket and Orion spacecraft carry a conglomerate of technology to test scenarios of this project.
Even inside the ship are dummies that will help to understand the conditions to which the first two astronauts who will travel to the orbit of the Moon will be subjected.
Among the technologies that travel in the first part of the Artemis mission there is a tablet. Anyone could imagine the simple device for everyday use for work or entertainment.
And certainly this is the concept that NASA wants you to imagine so that you understand what they want to do. It is a device called Callisto that is completely modified in a collaboration of the firms Lockheed Martin, Amazon and Cisco.
What does NASA want to prove with this device?
As reported by colleagues from xataka, NASA wants to test voice technology to execute commands in the spacecraft from Earth. In addition, they aim to ensure that Artificial Intelligence and videoconferencing technologies work outside our borders.
The scientists in charge of the mission explain that Calliston has an open function that makes it possible to send him a message from an application.
“Callisto will test a digital voice assistant and video conferencing capabilities in a deep space environment,” they write from NASA’s Artemis I official Twitter.
Video calls in real time with Earth is one of the most interesting challenges and this part comes from a software developed by Cisco.
