Crew assistance

During NASA’s Underway Recovery Test 11 on February 27, 2024, sailors assisted astronauts from a crew module test article onto a life raft in the Pacific Ocean. This test, conducted in preparation for NASA’s Artemis II crewed mission, is part of a series aimed at demonstrating and assessing the processes, procedures, and equipment employed in recovery operations for crewed lunar missions, involving collaboration between NASA and the Department of Defense (DOD).
