NASA to send humans to the moon, first time in 50 years


NASA’s new and powerful Space Launch System rocket is set to blast off from the Kennedy Space Center on August 29th. The flight is the maiden voyage of the Artemis mission, that aims to send humans to the moon for the first time in 50 years.
In a news conference conducted on Friday, the organization revealed 13 probable landing zones for its Artemis 3 mission (Aug. 19). The south pole of the moon, a region of significant scientific and exploration interest, is where all the contenders are grouped together.
According to Mark Kirasich, NASA’s deputy assistant administrator for the Artemis Campaign Development Division, “they’re of importance to the scientific community and the technical community.” There are things that people want and need to do.

According to Sarah Noble, the Artemis lunar science lead for NASA’s Planetary Science Division, “We can do intriguing science at all of them.” The scientific community has been discussing several of these locations for years.
The selected regions are: Faustini Rim A, Peak Near Shackleton, Connecting Ridge, Connecting Ridge Extension, two regions on the rim of de Gerlache Crater, de Gerlache-Kocher Massif, Haworth, Malapert Massif, Leibnitz Beta Plateau, two regions on the rim of Nobile Crater and Amundsen Rim.

At the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, NASA will cover the prelaunch, launch, and postlaunch activities for Artemis I, the first integrated test of the Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and the ground systems. A crewed flight test and upcoming human lunar exploration as part of Artemis will be made possible by this unmanned flight test around the Moon.
It is planned to launch the SLS rocket during a two-hour window that begins at 8:33 a.m. EDT on Monday, August 29, from Kennedy’s Launch Pad 39B.
On Wednesday, the rocket and spacecraft made the almost 10-hour, four-mile journey from the Vehicle Assembly Building to the launch pad. On the NASA Kennedy YouTube account, a livestream of the rocket and spacecraft at the launch pad is currently available.
Prelaunch events begin on Monday, August 22, and will be broadcast live on NASA Television, the NASA app, and the agency’s website. The countdown to launch will start at 10:23 on Saturday, August 27.
