Following the departure of the Artemis 1 mission, which we recall concerns an unmanned journey around the Moon, we return to the subject due to the launch of an initiative that could intrigue space enthusiasts. In fact, NASA is allowing it to send messages to the Orion capsule.
What do you mean? Obviously there is no chat or anything like that, but, as also reported by gizmodethere will be one demonstration of Callisto technology, a project in collaboration with Lockheed Martin, Amazon and Cisco. Yes, we are referring to the iPad included in the Artemis 1 mission that we had already covered on these pages, which will also be useful for carrying out tests related to the Amazon Alexa voice assistant.
Obviously, this is a model customized to withstand various eventualities, as well as to take advantage of the Deep Space Network. In any case, the tablet screen will also come in handy for show the world messages from users. Enthusiasts can send the text using a special form on the Lockheed Martin official websitetyping a message of up to 120 characters, entering your name and leaving your e-mail address.
Your post may not be selected, since, as you can well imagine, the choice is at the discretion of Lockheed Martin. In this regard, inappropriate messages will not be clearly shown, just as, for example, texts with copyright or endorsements of products, people, brands and so on will be automatically discarded. In short, the messages that will appear on the iPad screen will be rightly selected and therefore not everyone will have this possibility, but it is certainly a nice initiative.
