The return of humans to the Moon will undoubtedly be a cause for celebration. Enough to toast with champagne and put the ship in party mode. The former may not be feasible. Not because the right drink doesn’t exist, but because it’s better to have all your senses on the satellite. But a little bit of colored lighting won’t hurt anyone. That’s why, NASA and Lockheed Martin Company They are testing what they have dubbed the “party mode” of the Orion capsule.
Right now the ship is traveling to the Moon with no crew other than a few mannequins. Therefore, the command that activates the party mode has been launched from Earth. It will be one of many functions that can be activated from Callistoa voice assistant connected to Amazon Alexa that will make the journey of astronauts to the Moon much more bearable.
At the moment, NASA and Lockheed Martin have taken advantage of social networks to share some images, in which they look different light changes Inside the Orion capsule. Without a doubt, it is not at all the most relevant thing about this ship. However, now that space tourism is much more than science fiction, it does not hurt to carry out this type of experiment as well.
Orion on the way to the Moon, much more than the party mode
The launch of the Orion capsule has marked the first step of the Artemis mission, with which humans will be taken back to the Moon. This first release has suffered several delays since this summer. However, it has finally been a success.
The ship’s departure went smoothly and on his trip he has already taken several photos that show a curious perspective, both of the Moon and of our own planet. Once on the Moon, the mission consists of orbit aroundand then return to Earth.
If everything goes smoothly, in 2024 the procedure will be repeated with crew. That is to say, this time astronauts will go aboard Orion, but they will not land on the Moon, but will simply orbit around it. We will have to wait for the moon landing at least until 2025. Be that as it may, in all these trips, a bit of light and color can go a long way to make everything more enjoyable.
That would be the objective of the party mode, although for now it is nothing more than an anecdote. There will be much more important functions to request from Callisto, although this is the most striking in sight.
