Suara.com – NASA’s Artemis I mission will send the Orion spacecraft around the moon.

NASA, which has just finished assembling the SLS rocket, is now asking the public for help to name its Artemis I mission “Stoveway.”

The Stowaway is a human-shaped mannequin that will be flown while working.

NASA has announced the Artemis Munich challenge to decide what name to give the Manequin.

The drone is targeted to take off by the end of this year.

The mission will allow NASA to gather data on how space travel will affect the actual human body.

NASA has reduced the name selection to eight, namely Ace, Vargo, Delos, Duhard, Campos, Shackleton, Montgomery and Rigel.

Reported from CNET, Thursday (17/6/2021), Every name has a meaning. Ace stands for “Artemis Crew Explorer”.

Duhard is dedicated to Irene Duhard Long, chief medical officer at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

The name “Montgomery” is not Montgomery Scott from Star Trek.

But Julius Montgomery is credited with being the first African-American to work as a technician at NASA’s Cape Canaveral space facility.

Names for voting will be posted on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram starting June 16.

Final voting will be officially announced on June 28 and June 29.

According to NASA, the mannequins on the Artemis I mission will be equipped with two radiation sensors and a seat sensor, which will be able to record acceleration and vibrations throughout the mission as Orion orbits the moon and returns to Earth.

Mannequins will not be completely alone.

With it will be two models of the human body, which NASA calls “ghosts,” and they are made of materials that mimic human bones, soft tissues, and adult female organs.

NASA’s long-term plan is to send the first female astronauts and the first people of color to the lunar surface.

But before sending astronauts, NASA had to test SLS and Orion via the Artemis I mission.

The two “Phantoms” already have NASA names, called Solkar and Helka.
