AIAA Aerospace Perspectives Series: Firing Up The Artemis I Rocket 10 December 2020 1500 - 1600 (Eastern Standard Time) Virtual
On Demand Recording Available
This AIAA Aerospace Perspectives Series webinar is hosted by AIAA and presented by NASA.
Join us for a virtual briefing with NASA as it prepares for the first integrated flight of the
Space Launch System (SLS) and Orion for the Artemis I mission to bring humanity back to the moon. Get a behind-the-scenes update on the progress of the Artemis Program and Green Run testing of the world’s most powerful rocket with John Blevins, SLS Chief Engineer, NASA.
The next SLS Artemis milestone will occur when NASA hot fires all four of the SLS stage’s boosters in an 8-minute test called the Green Run Hot Fire. The SLS rocket’s 212-foot-tall core stage will be used for all configurations of the SLS rocket, and the series of eight hot-fire tests will verify that the stage is ready for the first and future Artemis lunar missions.
The presentation will include a brief overview of the Artemis Program, what makes the SLS uniquely suited for these missions, and a status update on Artemis I, II, and III.
This webinar is open to the public and free of charge.
Dr. John Blevins is the Chief Engineer for NASA’s Space Launch System Program, managed at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. He helps direct the SLS Engineering efforts and oversees the SLS Chief Engineers Office.
