The Artemis I lunar mission POT it will have no human crew. In principle, it was reported that three mannequins named Moonikin Campos, Helga and Zohar will be the ones traveling on the Orion spacecraft, but now dear Snoopy will join them.
A stuffed animal of the dog will go where no other has gone, the Moon. It will be in the first integrated flight test of the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, several times delayed by different technical problems.
As explained in the report published on the website of Roof BlogArtemis I will check all spacecraft systems for the first time before the crew flies aboard Artemis II.
snoopy will get a spacesuit equipped with a zero-gravity indicator that provides a visual indicator of when a craft has reached the weightlessness of microgravity.
NASA reported on this: “In addition to the Sliver Snoopy doll and pins, a pencil tip from Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts studio will make the journey on Artemis I wrapped in a space-themed comic strip as part of a collection of memorabilia selected by NASA to fly aboard the Orion spacecraft”.
When will Artemis I be released?
NASA’s Artemis I Mission, which would take the Orion spacecraft into orbit around the Moon, has failed to receive the green light for launch. Leakage problems in the SLS megarocket affected its takeoff, which was expected by the end of last August.
Now the dates are running, with September also of difficulties, and the Artemis team hopes that November will be the definitive month.
The US aerospace agency indicated As crews complete post-storm recovery operations, NASA has determined that it will focus Artemis I launch planning efforts on the launch window beginning November 12 and ending November 27. .
