    On April 3, 2023, NASA announced the crew for Artemis II, the first non-test flight of the Orion Space Capsule, currently scheduled for late 2024. The mission’s pilot is slated to be Victor Glover, who witnessed multiple developmental tests of the craft’s Capsule Parachute Assembly System (CPAS) at U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground.

    Here, Glover (center) speaks to media representatives in the moments before a test of the CPAS on August 26, 2015. “A rocket with an American flag on the side of it is one of the most important things NASA is going to do in the near future in human spaceflight,” he said at the time
