NASA will send a mannequin around the moon, and you can help name it.
Slated to launch in November, a mannequin will be on board an uncrewed flight test of the Space Launch System and the Orion spacecraft, NASA said in a news release.
Its mission? Collect data to help astronauts on trips, such as the Artemis II spaceflight scheduled for 2023. The mannequin is designed to resemble the human body and is used in training for emergency rescues, medical education and research.
The mannequin will be geared up with two radiation sensors and a first-generation Orion Crew Survival System spacesuit, according to the release.
