NASA's Orion Spacecraft: Where to?

Even brands like Oreo, got crazier this time of the year and released moon-themed, so delicious, Oreos! Half-a-century later, however, NASA's top brass has admitted Apollo's lunar landers are no longer adequate for modern lunar exploration. In the Neil Armstrong Operations and Checkout Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Vice-President Mike Pence announced that the Orion capsule is ready for the first Artemis lunar mission. Jim Bridenstine, the actual Administrator of NASA, said in a statement that the Lunar Gateway will act as a home for the astronauts in the lunar orbit and will be used as a port for the human landing system.

The presolicitation notice to industry calls for recommendations on an underlying lander structure equipped for conveying two individuals down to the Moon's South Pole in 2024. The original came out half a year after NASA announced the success of the Apollo 11 mission and featured an American astronaut and a Soviet cosmonaut running through space at full speed towards the Moon.

NASA's Orion crew capsule is now complete and ready for the next stage of the project.

The magazine's headlining article "The Next Space Race" by Jeffrey Kluger insisted that China's Lunar program is now "most critically" in competition with the USA space agency and billionaires. The new Space Launch System will propel the uncrewed Orion to orbit the Moon in six days and then return to back to earth after a total of three weeks in space. Events marking the anniversary have revived public enthusiasm for crewed space flight, as NASA charts new missions to the Moon and on to Mars.

And all six landings occurred within the same equatorial region because the Apollo Command Modules were created to operate in a single orbit.

In 1962, started by the risk of the Soviet space program, President John F. Kennedy swore that the US would land an American space traveler on the moon before the decade's over.

European Space Agency (ESA) is also supporting NASA as the Orion will have a European Service Module, which will give power as well as the forward motion to the spacecraft during the mission and this is also complete.

The base of the Orion service module consists of designs which were originally put together for Europe's Automated Transfer Vehicle, a resupply ship for the ISS.

A fully functional Launch Abort System (LAS) with a test version of Orion attached, launches on NASAs Ascent Abort-2 (AA-2) atop a Northrop Grumman provided booster on July 2, 2019, at 7 a.m. EDT, from Launch Pad 46 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
