Artemis 1 is the first stage of a series of missions designed to send astronauts back to the moon as part of NASA’s Artemis program.

Here’s what you should know about it

NASA is on a mission to return astronauts to the moon as part of the Artemis program.

Its inaugural Artemis I mission will be an uncrewed expedition around the moon and serve as practice for future missions to Mars.

‘’And it’s back to the Moon and then on to Mars.”

Here’s everything else you need to know about Artemis 1

NASA’s mega moon rocket – the Space Launch System – is scheduled to lift off on August 29.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the world’s most powerful rocket ever right here.’’

NASA administrator, Bill Nelson

Sitting on top of the 322-foot-tall rocket is the Orion astronaut capsule.

It is designed to separate from the rocket in space, ferry humans toward the moon

and rendezvous with a separate spacecraft that will take astronauts to the lunar surface.

The Space Launch System-Orion cost $37 billion to develop, including ground systems.

For the Artemis 1 mission, the Orion capsule will launch atop the Space Launch System without any humans

and orbit the moon before returning to Earth 42 days later.

If all goes according to plan, subsequent Artemis missions will follow, sending astronauts around the moon and back.

Artemis I is a crucial, long-delayed demonstration trip to the moon for NASA.

The U.S. space agency hasn’t sent any humans to the moon since 1972, when Apollo 17 astronaut Eugene Cernan left the last footprints on the lunar surface.

“NASA’s Artemis program will pave the way for humanity’s giant leap, future missions to Mars. There’s no doubt that we are in a golden era of human space exploration, discovery and ingenuity in space, and it all begins with Artemis 1.”

OpenAI has released a software tool that can identify if text has been generated by artificial intelligence

The company behind the popular chatbot ChatGPT says it has trained a language model to distinguish between something written by a human, and A.I.

‘AI Classifier’ uses a variety of providers to address issues such as automated misinformation campaigns and academic dishonesty.

The detection tool is very unreliable on texts under one thousand characters, and AI-written text can be edited to trick the classifier.

Many schools across the world have already banned ChatGPT from being used for projects.

Samsung has reported its lowest quarterly profit in eight years, dropping 69 per cent

The company believes sluggish demand and macroeconomic uncertainty will make for a tough first half, though demand will likely recover in the second half.

The South Korean tech giant made $3.5billion profit for the quarter – the lowest since 2014 – with revenue down eight per cent.

In its chip business, profits also plunged when compared to year ago.

Memory chip prices are widely expected to decline further in the first quarter as customers continue to hold off purchases and use up existing inventory while device demand remains depressed.
