Several of our SAWE HR members are quite excited to note that NASA’s new crewed access to space capability will undergo an Ascent Abort test on July 2nd.
NASA Television will broadcast launch and prelaunch activities for the Ascent Abort-2 flight test of the launch abort system for NASA’s Orion spacecraft, which will help pave the way for Artemis missions with astronauts to the Moon and then Mars.
Details are available here on how to view a NASA broadcast of the event.
SAWE HR involvement in this program was also captured in several papers at the recent International Convention, including the Best Paper provided by Anjie Emmett:
Best Paper #3710: Application of the Law of Propagation of Uncertainties to a Weight and CG Measurement System – Anjie Emmett
Presentation: Ascent Abort 2 (AA-2) Integrated Flight Test Vehicle: How Mass Properties are Used to Manage Flight Test Objectives – Amanda Cutright
Student Paper S3730: Path of a Future Engineer – Brittany Johnston
