Artemis Crewed Mission readiness report

Artemis Crewed Mission readiness report

Artemis Crewed Mission readiness report

Analysis of the Artemis I flight, not exactly NASA's finest moment, although it may be that I just haven't seen this sort of report before.


To ensure the safety of the crewed Artemis II mission, we recommended the Associate Administrator for Exploration
Systems Development Mission Directorate: (1) ensure the root cause of Orion heat shield char liberation is well understood
prior to launch of the Artemis II mission; (2) conduct analysis of Orion separation bolts using updated models that account
for char loss, design modifications, and operational changes to Orion prior to launch of the Artemis II mission; (3) require
EGS conduct additional verification and validation for launch imagery equipment prior to launch attempts should launch
conditions change; (4) reexamine procedures to better ensure recovery of Orion jettisoned hardware for the Artemis II
mission; (5) develop a corrective action plan to mitigate or prevent the recurrence of uninterpretable Orion telemetry data
for the Artemis II mission; and (6) establish a course of action and timeline for individual Artemis system design changes
before beginning integrated system assembly stacking operations.

RE: Artemis Crewed Mission readiness report

since they're getting ready to launch Artemis II, this report seems pretty late ... unless Boeing were primed on what to expect, and have been working it already (which is very likely).

RE: Artemis Crewed Mission readiness report

I think Artemis 2 may have been pushed-back into next year... or [optimistically] late this year.

Some better news for Boeing: Crewed Starliner scheduled for launch today 1830 EST... destination the ISS. Butch Wilmore is commander and Suni Williams is pilot.

What is the weather situation at the Cape?

I don't see weather being a factor, it's about as good as you could hope for.
I gotta say, I'm really hoping Boeing has this figured out. I always thought the crew capsule would be the easiest part of the system, but Boeing sure has struggled with it. Fingers crossed for a successful (and safe) mission.
