Space exploration is no longer limited to professional astronauts

The natural evolution of the commercial spaceflight crew program, according to Wilmore

For more than five decades, space exploration has been controlled by a handful of countries capable of sending vehicles into space, but it is changing rapidly. Within days of each other, billionaires Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos have both launched their own private projects. vehicles financed at the edge of space, marking the start of passenger space flight. Elon Musk’s SpaceX Crew Dragon flew 25 missions to the International Space Station, including two crewed flights. the spacecraft, being responsible for it – with some government oversight and demands – and then they would sell it to the government and that’s what happens, ”said astronaut Butch Wilmore. Wilmore’s career at NASA spans two decades and began with a shuttle mission, and “I mean, who ever dreamed that I would be sitting in a Russian rocket leaving the planet, right? “Go to the space station, command the space station, go on spacewalks,” Wilmore said. And now he’s ready to command the first human flight of Starliner, the reusable vehicle built by Boeing for NASA’s commercial crew program. etal flight test. It’s fascinating, and a great opportunity, and I’m honored to have this opportunity, and excited about it, ”said Wilmore. According to Wilmore, in the coming years, the commercial crew program will get more low-orbit astronaut travel and the ISS. Companies large and small manufacture components for SLS and Orion, as well as micro-payloads. Science experiments a little bigger than a shoebox, tucked away in the Orion spacecraft’s stage adapter. An Unusual Opportunity to Experiment in “Small micro-to-cube payloads provide an opportunity for universities, as well as businesses, to dip their toes or perform research in a space environment,” said Freddie Douglass III , director of tests for Stennis Space Center. “That’s why we applaud people like Spacex and Blue Origin for their activities. Even though it’s a low earth orbit, which they’re playing with right now, they end up working to get a piece of the pie, for example, to be able to support the space program, “said Barry Robinson, NASA SLS Core. Stage test project manager. Robinson said these companies and many other companies have worked or are working on their projects at the Stennis Space Center in Hancock County. It’s a lot of dreams, innovation and creativity. a point where an ordinary everyday traveler can real It’s just to go to the edge of space, or to the very edge of space, from Earth, and come back safely – you know, it’s done now, ”said Robinson. Wilmore expects even more no – professional astronauts to discover the unknown elements of space, sooner than you might think, “The apparent lack of gravity and the flutter, and all that sort of thing, just that aspect of being able to experience it. It’s fascinating to all of us. Or almost all. You know, my wife isn’t fascinated by that, but most of us are, “said Wilmore. There’s more to learn at the Stennis Space Center, where visitors can see the engines tested for Artemis light up on the mission’s first launch.

For more than five decades, space exploration has been controlled by a handful of countries capable of sending vehicles into space, but it is changing rapidly.

Within days of each other, billionaires Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos have both launched their own privately funded vehicles to the edge of space, marking the start of passenger spaceflight.

Elon Musk’s SpaceX Crew Dragon flew 25 missions to the International Space Station, including two crewed flights.

“That’s what the commercial crew program, it’s the natural evolution of spaceflight that would occur. That we would get companies that would completely build the spacecraft, would be responsible for it – with some oversight and requirements of the government – and then they would sell to government and that’s what happens, “said astronaut Butch Wilmore.

Wilmore’s career at NASA spanned two decades and began with a shuttle mission, and more.

“I mean, who ever dreamed that I would be sitting in a Russian rocket leaving the planet, right? Go to the space station, command the space station, go on spacewalks,” said Wilmore.

And now he’s ready to command the first human flight of Starliner, the reusable vehicle built by Boeing for NASA’s commercial crew program.

“To be able to command that and be a part of that, the whole development and process of getting into an experimental flight test. It’s fascinating and a great opportunity, and I’m honored to have this opportunity and excited about it, ”said Wilmore.

According to Wilmore, in the coming years, the commercial crew program will allow more astronauts to travel in low orbit and to the ISS. Companies large and small manufacture components for SLS and Orion, as well as micro-payloads.

Science experiments a little bigger than a shoebox, tucked away in the Orion spaceship’s stage adapter. An extraordinary opportunity to experiment in space.

“Small micro-to-cube payloads provide an opportunity for universities, as well as businesses, to get started or perform research in a space environment,” said Freddie Douglass III, test director for Stennis Space Center.

“That’s why we applaud people like Spacex and Blue Origin for their activities. Even though it’s a low earth orbit, which they’re playing with right now, they end up working to get a piece of the pie. , for example, to be able to support the space program, ”said Barry Robinson, NASA SLS Core Stage test project leader.

Robinson said these companies and many others have worked or are working on their projects at the Stennis Space Center in Hancock County. It’s a lot of dreams, innovations and creativity.

“Just to think that we would get to the point where a normal, everyday traveler can actually go to the very limits of space, or the very edge of space, from earth, and come back safely – you know, that is now done, “said Robinson.

Wilmore expects more non-professional astronauts to experience the unknown elements of space, sooner than we think,

“The apparent lack of gravity and the floating, and all that sort of thing, just that aspect of being able to experience it. It’s fascinating to all of us. Or most of us. You know, my wife does. We’re not fascinated by it, but most of us are, ”Wilmore said.

There’s more to learn at the Stennis Space Center, where visitors can see the engines tested for Artemis light up on the mission’s first launch.
