NASA Johnson

Опубликовано: 23 авг. 2019 г.

NASA is working to land the first woman and the next man on the Moon by 2024. Teams across the country are charging ahead to make that happen as they build and test the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, Orion spacecraft, and Exploration Ground Systems (EGS) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

Some major recent milestones include: Orion – Spacecraft processing at the Operations & Checkout Building at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center; Successfully testing the launch abort system during the Ascent Abort-2 Test at Cape Canaveral. SLS – Connecting the Liquid Hydrogen Tank to the Core Stage; loading the Liquid Oxygen Tank Structural Test Article onto the Pegasus Barge at Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans. EGS – Mobile Launcher (ML) Roll-Out to Launch Pad 39B; Water Flow Test with the ML; Lightning Tower Painting at Pad 39B; and the Tail Service Mast Umbilical Drop Test.

HPE строит новый суперкомпьютер для моделирования лунной миссии
Цитата
Национальное управление США по аэронавтике и исследованию космического пространства (NASA) и Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) объединили усилия для создания нового суперкомпьютера, который будет использоваться в принадлежащем космическому агентству исследовательском центре Эймса для моделирования и симуляции процесса посадки на Луну в рамках миссий Artemis.

Новый суперкомпьютер получил название Aitken, в честь американского астронома Роберта Гранта Айткена (Robert Grant Aitken). Его теоретическая пиковая производительность составляет 3,69 Пфлопс. Aitken основан на системе HPE SGI 8600 — комплексной специализированной платформе высокопроизводительных вычислений (HPC), которая включает специальные возможности жидкостного охлаждения для оптимальной энергоэффективности.

Aitken использует процессоры Intel Xeon Scalable второго поколения, высокоскоростную сеть Mellanox InfiniBand, имеет на борту 46 080 ядер и 221 Тбайт памяти для хранения данных. Коэффициент эффективности использования электроэнергии PUE равен 1,03. Конструкция устройства включает 1150 узлов.

Новый центр NASA, базирующейся в Маунтин-Вью (штат Калифорния), будет использовать естественную температуру в районе залива и методы испарения для охлаждения суперкомпьютера, заменив потребность в градирне и больших объёмах воды.
HPE и раньше сотрудничала с NASA. В 2017 году компания создавала для агентства суперкомпьютер Spaceborne Computer, который был отправлен на Международную космическую станцию (МКС).

NASA предоставило Lockheed Martin контракт на 12 кораблей Orion для запусков к Луне
Директор NASA Джеймс Брайденстайн назвал это решение "вехой в реализации программы Artemis"

НЬЮ-ЙОРК, 24 сентября. /ТАСС/. Национальное управление США по аэронавтике и исследованию космического пространства (NASA) предоставило компании Lockheed Martin право выполнить контракт на строительство от шести до 12 космических кораблей Orion, предназначенных для запусков к Луне в рамках программы Artemis. Об этом сообщил в понедельник на своей странице в Twitter директор NASA Джеймс Брайденстайн.

Он назвал данное решение "вехой в реализации программы Artemis, предусматривающей высадку первой женщины и очередного мужчины на Луне к 2024 году". "Сегодня мы предоставили Lockheed Martin контракт на производственную линию, которая обеспечит 12 миссий", - отметил Брайденстайн.

Согласно сообщению NASA, Lockheed Martin обязалась поставить минимум шесть или максимум 12 кораблей в период по 30 сентября 2030. Контракт определяет стоимость трех Orion в $2,7 млрд и еще двух - в $1,9 млрд.

NASA весной объявило о том, что новая программа освоения Луны получила название Artemis. Она будет состоять из трех этапов: первый (Artemis 1), предусматривающий непилотируемый полет установленного на тяжелой ракете Space Launch System (SLS) корабля Orion вокруг Луны и его возвращение на Землю, запланирован на вторую половину 2020 года. Второй этап (Artemis 2) - облет естественного спутника Земли с экипажем на борту - намечен на 2022 год. На третьем этапе (Artemis 3) NASA рассчитывает осуществить высадку астронавтов на Луну в 2024 году.

В мае президент США Дональд Трамп объявил о намерении направить в бюджет космического ведомства дополнительно $1,6 млрд на программы освоения Луны и Марса. Эту сумму Белый дом запросит у Конгресса в дополнение к $21 млрд, которые будут выделены на финансирование деятельности NASA в 2020 финансовом году.

RELEASE 19-074
NASA Commits to Long-term Artemis Missions with Orion Production Contract

... The agency has awarded the Orion Production and Operations Contract (OPOC) to Lockheed Martin of Littleton, Colorado. Spacecraft production for the Orion program, managed at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, will focus on reusability and building a sustainable presence on the lunar surface.

... OPOC is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract that includes a commitment to order a minimum of six and a maximum of 12 Orion spacecraft, with an ordering period through Sept. 30, 2030. Production and operations of the spacecraft for six to 12 missions will establish a core set of capabilities, stabilize the production process, and demonstrate reusability of spacecraft components.

... With this award, NASA is ordering three Orion spacecraft for Artemis missions III through V for $2.7 billion.
The agency plans to order three additional Orion capsules in fiscal year 2022 for Artemis missions VI through VIII, at a total of $1.9 billion. Ordering the spacecraft in groups of three allows NASA to benefit from efficiencies that become available in the supply chain over time – efficiencies that optimize production and lower costs.

Spacecraft reusability – itself a significant cost saver for the agency – will help NASA build the capabilities for sustainable exploration at the Moon and beyond. The long-term plan is to reuse the recovered crew modules at least once. The first phase of reusability will start with Artemis II. Interior components of the spacecraft, such as flight computers and other high value electronics, as well as crew seats and switch panels, will be re-flown on Artemis V. The Artemis III crew module will be re-flown on Artemis VI.

The first six spacecraft will be acquired by cost-plus-incentive-fee ordering. Because the cost of a complex, high-tech system generally decreases over time as the design stabilizes and production processes mature, NASA will negotiate firm-fixed-price orders for future missions to take advantage of the anticipated spacecraft production cost decreases. Furthermore, the cost incentives on the cost-plus-incentive-fee orders are designed to motivate favorable cost performance during early OPOC production and drive substantially lower prices for any subsequent firm-fixed-price orders issued under this contract.

Work under this contract also will support production of NASA’s lunar-orbiting Gateway and evolving mission requirements. Production of certain spacecraft components already designed and qualified for Orion will be provided for Gateway use, eliminating the need for the Gateway Program to develop and qualify similar components.

“The men and women at Johnson Space Center represent the best and brightest scientific minds, and I’m confident with additional Orion spacecraft they will push the limits of exploration to the Moon and beyond,” said Sen. John Cornyn of Texas. “I commend the Trump Administration for recognizing the importance and tradition of Houston as the center of human spaceflight and exploring the next frontier.”

Houston has long been the hub of America’s human space exploration program, from the early days of Gemini, Mercury, and Apollo to Artemis. With NASA’s accelerated return to the Moon, Johnson Space Center now is managing more major human spaceflight programs than ever before. In addition to the Orion program, the Texas facility also manages NASA’s Gateway and International Space Station programs, and is home to the Mission Control Center and America’s astronaut corps – the next moonwalkers. Johnson also manages the agency’s Commercial Lunar Payload Services, the first two deliveries for which are targeted to launch to the Moon in July 2021.

“No other spacecraft in the world can keep humans alive hundreds of thousands of miles from Earth for weeks at a time with the safety features, crew accommodations, technical innovations, and reliability that Orion provides,” said Mark Kirasich, Orion Program manager at Johnson. “With the design and development phase of Orion largely behind us, this new contract will enable us to increase efficiencies, reuse the spacecraft, and bring down the cost of reliably transporting people between earth and the Gateway.”

NASA is working to land the first woman and next man on the Moon in five years as part of the agency’s Artemis program. Orion, the Space Launch System rocket and Gateway are part of NASA’s backbone for deep space exploration.
Work is well underway on both the Artemis I and II Orion spacecraft. Engineers at Kennedy Space Center in Florida have completed and attached the crew and service modules for Artemis I and are preparing the spacecraft for environmental testing. Meanwhile, teams at Kennedy are integrating thousands of parts into the crew module for Artemis II in preparation for the first crewed Artemis mission.

NASA official hints first SLS launch could slip to mid-2021
by Jeff Foust — October 11, 2019


The acting associate administrator for human exploration and operations at NASA, Ken Bowersox, said that current schedules calling for a late 2020 first launch of SLS are "very, very aggressive" that that the launch may slip well into 2021. Credit: NASA

LAS CRUCES, N.M. — While NASA continues to wait to set a new official date for the first launch of its Space Launch System, an agency official said Oct. 10 that the launch could slip as late as the middle of 2021.

NASA’s formal estimate of the first launch of SLS, a mission called Artemis 1, remains late 2020. That date, though, assumes that everything will go exactly as planned for the remainder of the vehicle’s development and testing.

“The schedule that we’re managing to is very, very aggressive,” said Ken Bowersox, acting associate administrator for human exploration and operations at NASA, during a presentation at the International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Spaceflight (ISPCS) here.

That schedule calls for finishing the core stage of the vehicle at the end of this year and shipping it to the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi for a static-fire test known as the Green Run. “In the best case, it’s going to be five or six months” of testing there, he said.

He added, though, that there are “risks” to that timeline due to both technical issues, such as the amount of time needed to refurbish the stage after the test, as well as weather that can delay work on the outdoors test stand.

After the Green Run, the stage would be shipped to the Kennedy Space Center for integration with its two solid rocket boosters, upper stage and the Orion spacecraft that will perform an uncrewed test flight in cislunar space.

“We have a chance to actually have a rocket on the pad and launch by the end of next year,” he said. “But when you start throwing all those different uncertainties, it’s more likely that we will move out into 2021.”

Earlier in his speech, he suggested that the Artemis 1 launch could slip well into 2021. “Some time late next year, middle of the year after,” he said, “the first uncrewed Orion will be launched out around the moon.”

Bowersox’s comments are the strongest signal yet that a 2020 launch of the SLS appears unlikely. Slips in the schedule in March prompted NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine to propose flying what was then known as Exploration Mission 1 on an alternative vehicle to the SLS, a proposal strongly opposed by congressional supporters of the rocket and which the agency ultimately decided not to pursue.

NASA also considered shortening or doing away entirely with the Green Run as a means of saving several months of schedule. That move was opposed by many agency advisors, including the Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel, and Bridenstine announced in July that the agency would go ahead with the Green Run test.

A formal decision on a new launch date, Bowersox said, won’t come until the agency hires a new associate administrator for human exploration and operations. Bowersox, a deputy associate administrator, has held the position in an acting capacity since Bridenstine reassigned longtime associate administrator Bill Gerstenmaier three months ago.

“When we name a new [associate administrator], we’re going to give that person a chance to look at all of the schedule analyses that have been done, and let them rebaseline the date and cost information,” he said.

NASA, though, has not appeared to be in a rush to select a permanent successor to Gerstenmaier. Bowersox noted that, when he testified before a House committee Sept. 18, he estimated that person would be selected “by the end of the year,” a schedule he said he was then told by agency leadership was too long. “Now what I say is somewhere between a few weeks and a few months.”

Bridenstine, speaking Oct. 10 at SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California, after a meeting with Elon Musk, praised Bowersox for his interim leadership. “He’s doing great work,” Bridenstine said, arguing that it would not, at least, delay any commercial crew test flights. “As of right now, I’m very confident we can continue moving forward and not have any delays because of the opening in that position.”

Bridenstine hinted that the search for a new associate administrator may soon end. “We will come to a point where we settle on a name, but we’re not there yet,” he said. “That announcement is not months away, it’s weeks away.”

Bowersox said he was interested in taking the associate administrator position on a permanent basis. “If I wasn’t interested in the job, I wouldn’t still be here as the acting” associate administrator, he said. “I’d be happy to serve in the position.”

I wonder if the Red, White and Blue is PR, like the "never were going to be on them" swooshes on the SLS boosters?
