It is so exciting that we are going back to the moon.  NASA is planning a bold set of missions.  Although one of the missions will visit the moon again, the ultimate goals are much more far-reaching.  The intent is to learn from the moon visit and apply knowledge to future manned missions which will visit places far beyond the moon.

We are only one month until the Artemis I mission.  For this first mission, the uncrewed Orion Spacecraft will spend four to six weeks in Space, and go far beyond the moon. To do this, a very powerful rocket is needed to accelerate an Orion spacecraft fast enough to overcome the pull of Earth’s gravity.  This will be accomplished by NASA’s Space Launch System Rocket.  This is the most powerful rocket ever used by NASA, generating 8.8 million pounds of thrust.

As spacecraft and space missions become more complex, the rockets that propel them will also need to become more complex.  Rocket advances must keep up with Spacecraft advances, and the Space Launch System is one indication that Rocket scientists are up to the challenge.

If you want to learn more about Rocket Science, consider taking ATI’s upcoming course on the subject.  You can learn more about the course, and register for it, at Rockets & Launch Vehicles – Selection & Design

This four-day course provides an overview of rockets and missiles, including a fourth day covering advanced selection and design processes. The course provides a wide practical knowledge in rocket and missile issues and technologies. 

The course is right around the corner in August, so if you are interested, do not delay.

And, as always, if want to see the full list of courses offered by ATI, you can find that, and other interesting information at www.aticourses.com
