New Orleans works around the paper clock at the NASA's Mikoud Assembly Center in East, who intends to complete the 2020 deadline for the new fall to examine the mega-rocket designed to advance the Moon and the outside astronauts.
NASA's Deputy Administrator James Morhead told Friday (June 28th) that "I came here in the middle … talking to people who were working in the engine department, working hard at night."
He said that the core rocket assembly, or the space launch system, is 80 percent complete, which is still under assembly in five divisions. If everything goes well, then frequent delayed Artemis 1 test flight is expected in the fall of 2020, although no launch date has been announced.
Orion capsules, which were previously installed before moving the rockets out of 8 minutes and 14 seconds, are called to move forward. Then there is a capsule to make a double loop around the moon during a 25-30 day flight, NASA said.
Officials said that any commercial rocket, current or schematic, not as powerful as the space launch system, would handle three times the weight as heavy load as possible to handle the shuttle. Like many Apollo missions, decades ago, they also hailed a new approach to reaching the moon.
Miconode's Deputy Chief Operations Manager Lionel Dutreux said, "This exciting part will not be like Apollo … where we put the flag on the moon and leave it." "We will go back to the moon and use it as a technical support and knowledge to go to Mars. We are sure that these rockets will meet those needs."
The rocket is not reusable because, under the current plan, it will cost more to recover new engine engine energization and to renew it again, Duetx said.
In December, a huge rocket is being taken to the Marshall Space Flight Center in Swanville, Alabama for testing at NASA's Baggues. Despite being top with the Orion spacefree and its fuel tank, it will stand taller than 322 feet on the Statue of Liberty, but will be less than Saturday's V rocket, which will launch the Skylab space station and the Apollo program, which will lead men to the Moon.
Currently there will be four such RS-25 engines in the rocket section assembled in Micoud, which operate a space shuttle. These engines were seen in Microgad on Friday, in which the bright red strap marked "Face Ahead of This Face", which covers their huge rear end. Officials said that NASA has a more Dirty Artemis mission, which has six more contracts.
It was asked that spending on the program was $ 20 billion to $ 30 billion, Morhead said, "I will stand here and will not give a specific budget."
The Deputy Administrator will also not say that NASA is expected to add a $ 1.6 billion 2020 budget, requested by President Donald Trump for space exploration.
"The House added 1.3 billion dollars for science science. The Senate did not mark the bill, I'm seeing what the Senate does," he said.
