NASA to Discuss Findings from Successful Artemis I Moon Mission

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 agency's Artemis I Moon mission, the first integrated flight test of the agency's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, uncrewed Orion spacecraft, and associated ground systems.

Audio of the call will livestream on the agency's website at:

NASA's 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 NASA's SLS rocket Nov. 16, from Launch Pad 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Teleconference participants include:Jim Free, associate administrator, Exploration Systems Development Mission Directorate
Howard Hu, manager, Orion Program
John Honeycutt, manager, SLS Program
Shawn Quinn, manager, Exploration Ground Systems Program

Artemis I was the first of a series of challenging missions to build a long-term lunar presence for scientific discovery and a steppingstone on the way to Mars. NASA's Artemis II flight test will carry astronauts aboard Orion around the Moon, and will pave the way for the first human mission to the lunar South Pole on Artemis III.
