(NASA) – NASA will announce on June 1, that the company, or companies, selected to move forward in developing the next generation of spacesuits for Artemis missions at the Moon and the International Space Station during an event at the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.
The announcement will air live on NASA Television, the agency’s website, and the NASA app.
Event participants will include:
■ Vanessa Wyche, director, NASA Johnson
■ Lindsay Aitchison, program executive for Extravehicular Activity and Human Surface Mobility Program, NASA Headquarters
■ Lara Kearney, manager, Extravehicular Activity and Human Surface Mobility Program, NASA Johnson
■ Joel Montalbano, program manager, International Space Station, NASA Johnson
New spacesuits that allow humans to explore the lunar surface and unlock new spacewalk capabilities outside the International Space Station are a critical part of advancing human exploration in space and demonstrating continued American leadership.
Under Artemis, new exploration spacesuits, together with human surface mobility systems, the Space Launch System rocket, the Orion Spacecraft, ground systems, Gateway, and human landing systems, will enable NASA to return humans to and establish a long-term presence on the Moon and to eventually explore Mars.
