Lagniappe for February 2024 – NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration


Explore the February 2024 edition featuring:

  • RS-25 Test on Jan. 27
  • Day of Remembrance
  • NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Spinoff

There are two reasons why the last Thursday in January and the month of February are important at NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration moving ahead as the Artemis Generation.

Having been around for decades as the NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Stennis mascot, it is easy to forget important things if you are not intentional about remembering. For newer folks, whether new employees at NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Stennis or new fans of NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration in general, it is easy not to know something if you are never told about it.

NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration intentionally carves out time each January for a Day of Remembrance to honor members of the NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration family who lost their lives while furthering the cause of exploration and discovery, including the crews of Apollo 1 and space shuttles Challenger and Columbia.

This current moment in space history is a tribute to the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. One of the best ways NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration honors the sacrifice made by the previous crew members is by embracing safety as one of the core values at NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

This is the cornerstone for mission success as NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration prepares to send the first Artemis astronauts to the Moon. The four astronauts will venture around the Moon on Artemis II as part of NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s path to creating a long-term presence on the lunar surface for science and exploration.

The NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration safety culture benefits astronauts, employees, and even surrounding communities where employees participate in daily life. This is a reminder every day at NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and especially on the final Thursday in January.

Going forward, the annual Day of Remembrance leads into Black History Month (observed each February), which brings the opportunity to recognize Black Americans who have made contributions to America and NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s space program. 

One such person is the late NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration astronaut Ronald McNair, who was honored during the Day of Remembrance. McNair, the second Black astronaut to fly to space, was a member of the Challenger crew. He is one of several African Americans whose contributions helped pave the way for NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration to take giant leaps in space exploration for the Artemis Generation.

May we never forget that it is through the sacrifice and contributions of all that NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration explores for the benefit of all. May we never fail to honor those who have come before us, and may we always remember there is space for everybody – in NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration and all of life.

NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration completed the sixth of 12 scheduled RS-25 engine certification tests in a critical series for future flights of the agency’s SLS (Space Launch System) rocket as engineers conducted a full-duration hot fire Jan. 27 at NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.

NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration continued a critical test series for future flights of NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s SLS (Space Launch System) rocket in support of the Artemis campaign on Jan. 17 with a full-duration hot fire of the RS-25 engine on the Fred Haise Test Stand at NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.

As NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration innovates for the benefit of all, what the agency develops for exploration has the potential to evolve into other technologies with broader use here on Earth. Many of those examples are highlighted in NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s annual Spinoff book including dozens of NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration-enabled medical innovations, as well other advancements in 3D printing, robots, and brake designs.

One thing has remained constant throughout Maury Vander’s career with NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration – the satisfaction of being part of a team working to innovate and benefit the agency and the aerospace industry at large.
