NASA Artemis 1 mission’s communications with Earth explained
SPACE COMMUNICATIONS AND NAVIGATION
On our journey forward to the Moon and on to Mars, NASA must test our technologies and capabilities to ensure astronaut safety. The Artemis I mission will be an uncrewed flight test of the Orion spacecraft that places a human-rated crew vehicle in lunar orbit for the first time since the Apollo missions of the 1960s and 70s. The mission will showcase the capabilities of both Orion and the Space Launch System, NASA’s powerful new rocket which will launch Artemis
missions from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Communications services will allow flight controllers to send commands to the spacecraft and receive data from Orion and the Space Launch System. Artemis I will demonstrate NASA’s networks’ comprehensive communications services for journeys to lunar orbit. The mission relies on NASA’s worldwide network infrastructure for seamless communications, providing different service levels as Orion leaves Earth, orbits the Moon, and returns safely home.
The Deep Space Network and Near Space Network will handle communications with Orion spacecraft during its mission to the moon and back. NASA Goddard Space Flight Center explains.
