6 Astronauts Will Stay on the Moon for Up to Two Weeks Over the Next Decade
Link: 6 Astronauts Will Stay on the Moon for Up to Two Weeks Over the Next Decade
Many a great idea never saw fruition for want of determination or funding. In its plans to resume crewed missions to the Moon with the Artemis program in 2024, NASA certainly doesn’t lack determination. However, the US Congress seems reluctant to approve its funding. At the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group annual meeting yesterday, NASA scientists John Connolly and Niki Werkheiser discussed the potential the next decade holds for space exploration, voicing some mind blowing plans
Over 1969-1972, the world saw six crewed Apollo missions put twelve astronauts on the lunar surface. Connolly and Werkheiser told the meeting participants that the next mission will allow its crew of two to spend 6.5 days on the Moon, performing four walks and doing extensive scientific work.
Of course, the more lunar rock samples the new missions will be able to bring back to Earth, the better for science. With that in mind, Marshall Space Flight Center engineer Greg Chavers said that all technical companies willing to build landers for the future missions will have to be able to ensure a minimum of 35 kg return capacity, but preferably, 100 kg.
The second Artemis mission is planned for 2025, and its pressurized rover will arrive in 2026. Then, NASA hopes, the two-week missions with four astronauts working on them will follow before the decade is out.

Asgardia Connects With National Space Office of Angola
Asgardian Minister of Information and Communications Lena De Winne had an offline conversation with Zolana Rui João, the general manager of the National Space Programme Management Office of Angola (GGPEN) at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Washington, DC.
They discussed different issues and agreed to continue communications on topics of mutual interest.
Angola is among African countries that recently announced a program to develop their space program and are expected to launch a satellite in the coming years. While Angola’s first telecom satellite, Angosat-1, failed not long after reaching orbit in 2017 (due to the fault of the Russian upper stage), the sub-Saharan African nation will get a second shot at satellite ownership with the planned 2020 launch of Angosat-2.
Insurance worth $121 million for Angosat-1 will go toward Angosat-2, while Russia covers the remaining $199 million, according to Broadcast and Media Africa.
