NASA Unveils Artemis Accords to Control the Behavior of Countries Participating in the 2024 Lunar Mission

NASA has revealed a set of principles for guiding the behavior of countries participating in the 2024 lunar mission.

Called Artemis Accords, the space agency will require partners to sign the doctrine focused on creating a “safe and prosperous future” between nations in a new era of space exploration.

The agreement includes 10 basic standards, such as transparency of work, proper disposal of debris and assistance to astronauts at risk during a mission.

NASA also notes that the 1967 Outer Space Treaty is still in effect, but the new Artemis Accords build on the legal framework to strengthen a peaceful relationship on the Moon and beyond.

“While NASA is leading the Artemis program, international partnerships will play a key role in achieving a sustainable and robust moon presence as they prepare to carry out a historic human mission to Mars,” NASA said in the announcement.

“With many private sector countries and players conducting missions and operations in cislunar space, it is critical to establish a common set of principles for civilian exploration and use of space.”

The 1967 Outer Space Treaty contains 17 principles designed to ensure fairness and peaceful relationships at a time when people first explored the last frontier.

It “prohibits the deployment of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in space, prohibits military activities on celestial objects, and sets out legally binding rules for the peaceful exploration and use of space.”

Some 105 countries are included in the treaty and 26 others have signed it, but have yet to complete ratification.

NASA said the new Artemis Accords will not replace the treaty, but will extend it with more detailed principles for countries to play a role in the 2024 mission to the moon.

ARTEMIS AGREEMENTS

  • Peaceful purposes
  • Transparency
  • Interoperability
  • Emergency assistance
  • Registration of space objects
  • Release of scientific data
  • Protect heritage
  • Space resources
  • Deconfliction of activities
  • Removal of orbital debris and spacecraft

The Artemis Accords are named after the Artemis mission in which the first woman and the next man will land on the moon by the end of the decade.

Artemis, the successor to the Apollo lunar missions of the sixties and seventies, wants to develop settlements, a moon gate and even a radio telescope.

The new agreement requires that all countries involved be transparent, assist astronauts in difficulty, register space objects and release scientific data.

Countries must also agree to protect heritage sites and space objects, collect resources under international agreements, avoid harmful interference in other missions, and dispose of waste and spacecraft responsibly.

The idea of ​​preserving the lunar heritage was part of a number of Sci-Fi novels, including Andy Weir’s Artemis, including an Apollo 11 visitor center with a viewing window where people can see the Eagle Lander descent stage.

NASA wanted to ensure that the early space historic sites – including Apollo landing sites and the Russian Luna 2 spacecraft that was the first man-made object on the moon – are protected from destruction.

NASA said, “Protecting historical sites and artifacts will be as important in space as they are here on Earth.

“Therefore, under Artemis Accords, NASA and partner countries will commit to protecting sites and artifacts of historical value.”

Mike Gold, a NASA employee who led the development of the Artemis Accords, said, “We don’t just want to take astronauts to the moon, we want to continue our values.”

“We want to use the excitement surrounding Artemis to encourage partners to adopt these principles that we believe will lead to a more peaceful, transparent, safer and safer future in space – not only for NASA and the international partners we work with, but the whole world. “

Parts of the Artemis Accords leaked earlier this month, but with many details missing, some countries saw it as an attempt by the US to regulate exploration to the moon.

Dimitru Rogozin, head of the Russian space agency, responded to Twitter by comparing the “invasion” to that of Americans infiltrating Afghanistan or Iraq.

Gold and NASA’s deputy administrator, Jim Morhard, acknowledged Rogozin’s concerns and explained that the framework would be conducted as a negotiation with other countries rather than laws.

Morhard said, “We certainly hope that Russia will be part of this. It’s not like we don’t want them. ‘

China is on the list of countries invited to sign the Artemis Agreements, but NASA officials said the country and all others who join must also abide by human rights on Earth.

Although China is invited to join the Artemis Accords, NASA officials said it or another country should respect the safety of people on Earth.

“The empty core of the Long March 5B, weighing nearly 20 tons, was in an uncontrolled free fall along a path that took it over Los Angeles and other densely populated areas,” said NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine Ars Technica.

“I can’t think of a better example of why we need the Artemis chords. It is vital that the US leads and sets the standards of conduct for such irresponsible activities. Space exploration should generate hope and wonder, not fear and danger. ‘

The Trump administration and other aerospace nations see the moon as a major strategic asset in space, with mining for minerals as part of its appeal.

The moon is also valuable for long-term scientific research that could enable future missions to Mars – activities under a regime of international space law.

That international agreement, which had already been concluded in 1967 and which had been negotiated before the dawn of commercial space operators, is generally considered obsolete.

The Artemis Accords would create ‘safety zones’ around future lunar bases to prevent damage or interference from nearby competing countries or companies.

The pact also aims to provide a framework under international law for companies to own the resources they mine, the sources said.

NASA will land the first woman and the next man on the moon in 2024 as part of the Artemis mission

Artemis was the twin sister of Apollo and goddess of the moon in Greek mythology.

NASA chose her to personify her path to the moon, which will return astronauts to the lunar surface in 2024 – including the first woman and the next man.

Formerly Exploration Mission-1, Artemis 1 is the first in a series of increasingly complex missions that enable human exploration to the Moon and Mars.

Artemis 1 will be the first integrated flight test of NASA’s deep space exploration system: the Orion spacecraft, the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and the ground systems at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Artemis 1 will be an unmanned flight that will provide a basis for human exploration of deep space, demonstrating our dedication and our ability to expand human existence to the Moon and beyond.

During this flight, the spacecraft will launch on the most powerful rocket in the world and will fly beyond any spacecraft ever built for humans.

It will travel 450,000 miles (450,600 km) from Earth, thousands of miles beyond the moon over the course of a three-week mission.

Orion remains in space longer than any astronaut ship has done without connecting to a space station and returning home faster and hotter than ever before.

With this first exploration mission, NASA is leading the next steps of human exploration in deep space where astronauts will build and test the systems near the moon needed for lunar surface missions and exploration to other destinations further from Earth, including Mars.

They take the crew on a different route and test Orion’s critical systems with people on board.

The SLS rocket will go from an initial configuration capable of sending more than 26 tons to the moon, to a final configuration capable of sending at least 45 tons.

Together, Orion, SLS and Kennedy’s ground systems can meet the most challenging needs of deep-space crew and cargo missions.

Ultimately, NASA aims to achieve a sustainable human presence by 2028 as a result of the Artemis mission.

The space agency hopes that this colony will discover new scientific discoveries, demonstrate new technological advancements, and provide the foundation for private companies to build a lunar economy.
