After more than 50 years from Apollo missions who first brought the man on moon“now, with the Artemis missionswe come back to stay there, not to walk only on the lunar soil. “He is the CEO of Thales Alenia Space Italia, Massimo Comparinito remember, in conversation with the Adnkronos, the broad horizon of the new lunar missions Artemis of the NASA of which the first, Artemis 1, is on the launch pad with the countdown set again for September 3, at 20.17 Italian time, from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. After the stop on 29 August last due to a problem with the 3 Rs25 engine, NASA therefore tries again to launch Artemis 1 and to kick off the new lunar season with the new missions carried out in collaboration with Europe, through ESA, and which see Italy with ASI in an important role. “They will bring astronauts and astronauts back to our natural satellite this time to work on moon in the coming years, to build infrastructure, to install around the moon a real space laboratory “says Comparini.

“‘Moon to Mars’ is the slogan of NASA and it speaks clearly: return to the Moon in order to then ‘attack’ the colonization of Mars”. To indicate one of the basic objectives of the new Artemis moon missions is the CEO of Thales Alenia Space Italia, Massimo Comparini, in conversation with Adnkronos on the eve of the new launch date of Artemis 1 set for tomorrow, Saturday 3 September, at 20, 17 Italian time, from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Among the objectives of the missions Artemis, the CEO Comparini explains that they will serve to teach us how to “learn to work even with limited resources” on other planets. “And this means, among other things, learning to use more systems with a view to sustainability that will be strategic not only in the colonization of the red planet but above all to protect life on our planet Earth”. “We will apply on earth, for example, the technology for low water consumption crops and the Artemis missions will thus give new technological elements for sustainability on Earth” indicates the top manager. With the lunar missions of NASA’s new Artemis program “we will learn to live in another world, in worlds that will not be our Earth”.

And “in this match we are not spectators, we are protagonists” the CEO of Thales Alenia Space Italia is keen to say. “If for the Apollo missions we were ‘kidnapped’ by the Moon but only spectators, now – with the new lunar missions Artemis – Europe and Italy are an important partner, Italy is the actor and protagonist of this mission “.” The Artemis 1 mission is very exciting also because it collects years of work of thousands of engineers, very high skills, people: it is a mission that will be significant for all humanity. And the most important thing is that, apart from who will physically return to the lunar soil, this time there will also be European astronauts “adds Comparini.
