Artemis I Mission Update This Week @NASA

Artemis I Mission Update This Week @NASA

February 25, 2022: An update on our Artemis I mission, test firing an Artemis rocket engine, and a resupply mission delivers to the space station . . . a few of the stories to tell you about–This Week at NASA!

Learn more about the NASA Artemis Program:

This week marked Northrop Grumman’s 17th contracted resupply mission under the second Commercial Resupply Services contract with NASA. NASA astronaut Raja Chari commanded the Canadarm2 robotic arm to capture the U.S. Cygnus cargo craft. Robotics controllers on the ground took over shortly afterwards and remotely guided the Canadarm2 with Cygnus attached and installed it to the Unity module to begin three months of cargo operations. 

Cygnus launched atop an Antares rocket at 12:40 p.m. EST Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022, from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. At about 4:44 a.m., NASA astronaut Raja Chari, along with NASA astronaut Kayla Barron as backup, captured Cygnus, carrying 8,300 pounds of research, hardware, and science experiments to the International Space Station.

Each Cygnus spacecraft is named in honor of an individual who has made great contributions to human spaceflight. For the NG-17 mission, Cygnus celebrates Piers Sellers, a former NASA astronaut and renowned climate scientist.
