SAN DIEGO (July 18, 2023) Sailors from Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 23 conduct at-sea recovery training in San Diego Bay for the NASA Artemis II crewed mission, which will send four astronauts in Orion beyond the Moon. NASA and the U.S. Navy will conduct a series of tests to demonstrate and evaluate the processes, procedures, and hardware used in recovery operations for crewed lunar missions. The U.S. Navy has many unique capabilities that make it an ideal partner to support NASA, including its amphibious capabilities with the ability to embark helicopters, launch and recover small boats, three-dimensional air search radar and advanced medical facilities.
