NASA Is Pumping Around 2023: Here’s Why

It will be difficult for NASA to top 2022, a year marked by the first remarkable images from the James Webb Space Telescope, the successful completion of the Artemis I moon mission and hit an asteroid. So what now? A pumped up one NASA video released on Sunday previews all the space action to come in 2023.

The video features commentary from NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, who begins by saying, “We will never stop exploring the unknown in air and space.”

NASA has a busy list of activities for the year ahead. NASA announces astronaut selection for the Artemis II mission, the first crewed launch of the new lunar exploration era. Expect a lot of fanfare surrounding the unveiling of prototype spacesuits for future Artemis missions.

This should be the year Boeing finally launches astronauts to the International Space Station Starliner spacecraft while looking to catch up with SpaceX and its successful run of Crew Dragon travels.

Fans of space rocks can look forward to the delivery of material from asteroid Bennu as part of the Osiris-Rex mission. NASA also hopes to finally get the delayed Psyche mission to visit a metal-rich asteroid.

Perhaps less glamorous, but just as important are a series of climate-related projects, including the launch of the TEMPO pollution-monitoring satellite and the kick-off of NASA’s Earth information center project for sharing weather, land, water and climate data.

It’s not just space that will keep NASA busy. The agency is working on the innovative X-59 supersonic aircraft and X-57 all-electric aircraft as ways to improve air travel.

Expect new images and discoveries from Webb as an ongoing theme throughout the year. Thanks to NASA’s busy schedule, there will be no shortage of reasons to gaze at the stars in 2023.
