Artemis Moon Missions

#1  Postby The_Piper » Aug 29, 2022 12:33 pm

The Artemis 1 mission is set to launch in 4 minutes and 20 seconds. :lol: :eager: Ahh crap the timer just switched to 30 minutes. It's already been delayed 2 hours and I don't know why. It looks cloudy down there.
This is unmanned. It will go around the moon and is carrying a spacesuit among other experiments. It's supposed to last 6 weeks.




Damn,update: it's a "scrub" for today. There is an engine bleed. It's not working. :doh: The earliest opportunity is 12:48 pm September 2, if everything goes well.

Maybe he was hoping to get a package of photographic slides for his projector. :naughty2:

Well now it's planned for September 3 between 2:17-4:17 pm. I should be within range of a mobile data connection. :mrgreen:
Meteorologists with the U.S. Space Force Space Launch Delta 45 predict a 60% chance of favorable weather conditions for an Artemis I launch attempt during a two-hour window that opens at 2:17 p.m. EDT Saturday, Sept. 3. While rain showers are expected in the area, they are predicted to be sporadic during the launch window....

Well, I’d prefer they didn’t blow the goddamned thing up. So, take your time, do it right, NASA.

Humans already would've landed with drilling equipment on Enceladus or something if it wasn't for human nature. We're smart enough, individually, to be above that shit. Maybe not all of us... :lol:

This is what happens when you don't have a space program.
