NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, capped by the Orion spacecraft, sits on the mobile launcher at Launch Complex 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida prior to the Artemis I mission. Artemis I, which launched in November of 2022, was the first integrated test of the agency’s deep space exploration systems: SLS, the Orion spacecraft, and supporting ground systems. It was also the first in a series of increasingly complex missions to the Moon.

JPL engineer Patrick Degrosse shows the inside of VITAL, a type of ventilator.
Patrick Degrosse, engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, shows the guts of the ventilator that a team of NASA engineers designed in just over five weeks. The machine uses none of the parts used in traditional ventilators, so as not to compete for supply lines. Over 300 companies registered on the JPL website to learn more about the ventilator, and more than 100 applied for a license.
