NASA has completed the test process to simulate space performance for the Orion crew spaceship developed by Lockheed Martin and designed to carry crew on the agency's Artemis missions. The missions aim to bring the next American man back and bring the first American woman to the surface of the moon. It has reportedly "passed" NASA tests that include thermal vacuum and electromagnetic interference performance tests.
Obviously, NASA's ongoing coronavirus situation is not as usual (it's nowhere normal), but NASA has still managed to complete the tests it had to do at its Glenn research facility in Ohio. Glenn is home to the world's leading test facilities that simulate flight conditions, including wind tunnels and vacuum chambers. Orion's test completion at the facility means the company is now ready to move to NASA Kennedy and Florida.
It will fly to Kennedy aboard NASA's Super Guppy aircraft. This is a purpose-built cargo plane with an extremely wide body that is designed to transport larger than average cargo, just like the Orion capsule built by Lockheed.
NASA in general appears to be preparing for Artemis as well as other ongoing key programs such as the Commercial Crew program, where privately-operated missiles will fly astronauts to the International Space Station for the first time.
However, additional precautions have been taken to ensure the health of its astronauts, who are scheduled to fly on the first commercial-crew mission, and NASA's Marshall facility announced today that it will restrict access to "mission-critical personnel" after an employee tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday evening.
