NASA is well underway working on its #Artemis mission, the goal being to establish a sustainable presence on our Moon circa 2024.
One aspect of that is the development of its “Space Launch System” (aka #SLS
) rocket. Rather than experiment with humans on the first flight, NASA will be using a manikin … or, rather, a “moonikin.” Looking for name suggestions, but concerned that people might not take it seriously (surely not!), NASA has pre-selected these names as possibilities: Ace, Wargo, Delos, Duhart, Campos, Shackleton, Montgomery and Rigel. Starting today until June 28th, you can search for NASA’s post on social media if you want to cast a vote.
