When NASA’s Artemis-1 moon mission is scheduled to launch in two weeks, interested parties around the world should be able to view the mission’s current status online in real time. The US space agency announced this. For this purpose, a separate online portal called the “Artemis Real-time Orbit Website” (AROW) is planned, on which the location of the Orion space capsule and what milestones have been completed or are to come. Should be seen from about a minute later. Start. In addition, accurate data on spacecraft position, speed, temperature, distance and mission duration should also be available.
Data as the basis for your own apps
NASA promises that interested people can also use the data to build their own data visualizations, apps or other software. NASA engineer Richard Garodnik says it’s good to know what the spacecraft is doing during the mission, “but it will be interesting to see what creative projects other people come up with.” In addition, although the application was developed for the Artemis program, the technology behind it can be used for other missions as well. The site is due to go online on August 28, a day before the earliest Artemis-1 launch date. The Orion space capsule’s Twitter account should also use it.
Artemis-1 is the first mission in NASA’s ambitious Artemis program, which envisions mankind’s return to the Moon later this decade. In the first stage, NASA’s giant SLS rocket is yet to launch the unmanned space capsule to the Moon by the end of the month. It will then orbit it for several weeks and conduct critical tests for planned crew flights. After that, he is told to return to Earth and crash into the Pacific. According to NASA, an oft-mentioned sub-goal of the Artemis program is to send the first woman and the first black person to Mars. So far only white people have participated in the Apollo program.
