BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – Media are invited to view NASA’s Orion spacecraft for upcoming Artemis missions at the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida later this summer.
Engineers are in different phases of assembling and outfitting Orions for Artemis II through IV inside the Neil Armstrong Operations and Checkout Building at NASA Kennedy. Subject matter experts will be available for interviews.
A specific date for the event will be determined as engineers refine production schedules. Attendance for this event is open to U.S. and international media, and space is limited.
Credentialed media will receive a confirmation email upon approval. For questions about accreditation, please email email@example.com. For other questions, please contact Kennedy’s newsroom: at 321-867-2468.
NASA is preparing to join the Orion crew and service modules in the coming months ahead of Artemis II, the first crewed mission under Artemis.
Technicians are welding subsystem components of the Artemis III crew module throughout the summer. The Artemis IV Orion crew module arrived to Kennedy in February for initial outfitting.
Through Artemis missions, NASA will use innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before and collaborate with commercial and international partners. Then, we will use what we learn on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap: sending the first astronauts to Mars.
