NASA officials said Tuesday they saw no major problems from the Artemis 1 mission last fall that would alter the schedule for the crewed Artemis 2 mission. Program managers said they are working several smaller issues, including a greater amount of charred material removed from the Orion capsule's heat shield than expected, but noted that it did not pose a safety issue for the spacecraft. Engineers are also looking into a minor issue with the power system on Orion's service module, as well as repairing damage to the mobile launcher that was greater than expected. That work is not expected to affect the Artemis 2 launch, currently scheduled for late November 2024.
