NASA will hold a media teleconference at 12 p.m. EST Tuesday, March 7, to provide an update on data analyzed thus far on the agencys Artemis I Moon mission, the first integrated flight test of the agencys Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, uncrewed Orion spacecraft, and associated ground systems.
Audio of the call will livestream on the agencys website at:
NASAs Orion spacecraft splashed down in the Pacific Ocean, Dec. 11, completing the Artemis I flight test after traveling nearly 270,000 miles from our home planet at its farthest distance more than 1,000 times farther than where the International Space Station orbits Earth to intentionally stress systems before flying crew. The mission began with a successful liftoff of NASAs SLS rocket Nov. 16, from Launch Pad 39B at NASAs Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Teleconference participants include:
- Jim Free, associate administrator, Exploration Systems Development Mission Directorate
