Due to the delay, the spacecraft of the Artemas i mission touched launch pad 39B at the Kennedy Space Center at 1:47 on November 16, local time (13:47, Na Na river).
The high-flying Boston flight control team, the vehicle of the Artemas i mission, consists of the Oron spacecraft and the space rocket system (SLS) that operate on a regular basis to pull up the 12 interior walls of the spacecraft.
After 3 minutes of touching the launcher, the solid propellant stage of the SLS rocket began to work. Soon after, the rocket launcher and the protective cover of the device module also destroyed the Oron spaceship. 9 minutes later, the core stage of the SLS rocket destroys the temporary frozen propulsion stage and the Oron spacecraft.
The next important landmark is the upper solar panel of Oron. This was completed by Orson ship in 37 minutes. The battery is gathering power and the initial data is high so the device is working fine.
54 minutes after the launch, the operation raised the global orbit. The propulsion stage freezes temporarily for the next 20 seconds to raise the lowest point in Earth’s orbit of Oron, and prepares for the next stage of the important Earth-lander mission to the Moon.
1 hour 57 minutes after the launch, the temporary frozen propulsion (iCPS) stage of the next phase of the Moon’s rocket launch (TLi) took about 18 minutes, the Oron spacecraft also created this stage. The spacecraft activated the auxiliary propulsion engines to navigate to a safe distance, avoid the CPS, and begin to push to the Moon.
This launch also encountered some obstacles. About 3 hours before the launch, it was caused by a non-constant leak at the liquid hydrogen replenishment valve on the Artemas i movable booster valve. NASA sent a staff member to the valve to tighten the sealing nut to prevent the leak. The process took about an hour.
After dealing with that problem, another problem occurred when the signal from a radar location up to the balloon was lost due to a switch hole. The problem was fixed when the clock started counting down 10 minutes before kick-off.
In the end, the rocket launcher has taken a lot of effort and this is the fourth time these four sets have been on the pedestal. The first three times took place in March and June to test the pre-loading rate, the third in mid-August to prevent constipation due to a liquid-hydrogen leak and engine failure. The SLS rocket and Orson spacecraft were brought back to the Kennedy Space Center’s Vehicle assembly Building (VAB) for burial at 9 to avoid the storm, after which the maintenance, repair and death stages were carried out. red mattress.

The SLS rocket and the Oron spacecraft are three of the core components of NASA’s plan to return humans to the Moon. SLS is the largest rocket that NASA has ever built, weighing about 2,500 tons and nearly 100 meters high. In that period, Oron ship weighed 23 tons and had a diameter of h 5 m.
Artemas i is the opening mission of NASA’s Artems program to put humans on the Moon ready to live and work for a long time. The mission is expected to last 42 days. During the flight, the Oron spacecraft will fly 64,000 km beyond the Moon, more than 48,000 km away from the record set by Apollo 13. This route simulates the flight that the Artemis team will face in 2024. This would be the farthest distance any human-sized spacecraft has ever flown, according to NASA.
The main aim of the mission is to make sure that all the vehicles are ready to start launching the rocket to the Moon as well as other non-existent destinations. As a result, Oron has a simulated crew of three, equipped with sensors to measure radiation levels and the effects that the panel will have to respond.
This flight is also to test the durability of Oron’s thermal pads in the process of friction with the Earth’s atmosphere at a speed of nearly 40,000 km/h, 32 times the speed of sound. The heat pad is designed to withstand temperatures rising to nearly 2,760 degrees Celsius.
Artemas i will also deploy the Cabestat satellites and conduct a series of laboratory tests to analyze the lunar surface and identify radiation sources that are not harmful to cell life.
According to the route, the Artemas lunar eight-point program is divided into three phases. If successful, after the Artemas i mission, Artemis ii will put the moons on the Moon around 2024, and the moons on Artem will land on the surface in 2025.
NASA estimates that the Artemas program will cost a total of $93 billion from 2012 to 2025, and each SLS/Oron launch will cost about $4.1 billion.
