And an anniversary for one of our explorers on Mars … a few of the stories to tell you about – This Week at NASA!

La NASA presenta la misión lunar Artemis I

Previsualizamos la misión no tripulada Artemis I a la Luna durante dos sesiones informativas. El 3 de agosto, funcionarios de la agencia en la sede de la NASA y en otros centros de la NASA presentaron «Resumen general del panorama» de la tarea

«Artemis I muestra que podemos hacer grandes cosas. Cosas que unen a las personas, cosas que benefician a la humanidad. Cosas como Apolo inspiran al mundo». – Bill Nelson, administrador de la NASA

Siguió eso dos días después con un archivo Sumérgete más en la línea de tiempo y las operaciones de la misión. Desde el Centro Espacial Johnson. Actualmente, la agencia tiene como objetivo, a más tardar el lunes 29 de agosto, el lanzamiento de un cohete Space Launch System para enviar la nave espacial Orion alrededor de la luna y de regreso a la Tierra. Artemis I tendrá lugar en el transcurso de unas seis semanas para comprobar los sistemas antes de que los astronautas vuelen la nave espacial en el Artemis II.

Cartwheel galaxy (imagen compuesta de NIRCam y MIRI)

Esta imagen de Wagon Wheel y las galaxias que la acompañan se compone de la cámara web de infrarrojo cercano (NIRCam) y el instrumento de infrarrojo medio (MIRI), que revela detalles que son difíciles de ver solo en imágenes individuales.
Esta galaxia se formó como resultado de una colisión de alta velocidad que ocurrió hace unos 400 millones de años. La rueda consta de dos anillos, un anillo interior brillante y un anillo exterior de color. Ambos anillos se extienden hacia afuera desde el centro de la colisión como ondas de choque.

Webb toma una nueva imagen de Cartwheel Galaxy

Telescopio espacial James Webb de la NASA Produzca esta nueva imagen detallada de Cartwheel Galaxy y dos pequeñas galaxias. La galaxia Cartwheel, ubicada a unos 500 millones de años luz de nosotros, es un tipo raro de galaxia que los astrónomos llaman «galaxia anular». Se cree que la galaxia rueda de carro fue una galaxia espiral ordinaria como la nuestra.[{» attribute=»»>Milky Way before a collision with another galaxy affected the Cartwheel Galaxy’s shape and structure.

After 10 years on Mars, Curiosity Still Has Drive

NASA’s Curiosity rover is celebrating 10 years on Mars. The rover landed on the Red Planet at 10:32 p.m. PDT on August 5, 2012. Since then, it has driven about 18 miles and climbed more than 2,000 feet while exploring Gale Crater and the foothills of Mount Sharp. Most importantly, Curiosity determined that liquid water and the chemical building blocks needed for life were indeed present in this region of Mars for at least tens of millions of years. The Curiosity team now plans to have the rover spend the next few years exploring a new region, one thought to have formed as water was drying out, leaving behind salty minerals called sulfates.

The Next Commercial Crew Launch to the Space Station

The launch of our SpaceX Crew-5 mission to the International Space Station is currently targeted for no earlier than September 29 from our Kennedy Space Center. NASA astronauts Nicole Mann and Josh Cassada, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Koichi Wakata, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Anna Kikina discussed their upcoming mission during an Aug. 4 briefing at our Johnson Space Center.

“We are coming together as a human race. And our mission onboard the International Space Station of developing this technology and research to benefit all of humankind is really what brings us together.” — Nicole Mann, NASA Astronaut

This is NASA’s fifth crew rotation flight to the space station with a U.S. commercial spacecraft.

NASA Nichelle Nichols

Actor Nichelle Nichols, who died July 30, 2022, didn’t just break new ground on “Star Trek” by playing one of the first leading recurring Black female characters on U.S. television. A decade after the show ended, she did the same for NASA, appearing in a promotional film aimed at recruiting women and people of color to apply to be astronauts, as she recounted in a 2012 visit to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. The next astronaut class, appointed in 1978, included Guy Bluford, the first Black American in space, and Sally Ride, the first American woman in space. Credit: NASA

NASA Pays Tribute to Nichelle Nichols

NASA is remembering actor Nichelle Nichols, who passed away on July 30. She broke new ground on “Star Trek” in her role as Lieutenant Uhura, one of the first leading recurring Black female characters on U.S. television. Years later, NASA officials enlisted her help to recruit the first women and minority astronauts for the Space Shuttle Program. In a statement, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson noted that as we prepare to send the first woman and first person of color to the Moon under Artemis, NASA is guided by the legacy of Nichelle Nichols.

That’s what’s up this week @NASA
