NASA is looking for partnerships with the aerospace industry, studios, broadcasters, academic institutions, etc. to help NASA engage the human exploration story of the Moon with the Artemis program.
NASA has released an announcement for proposals asking for submissions of partnerships to visually bring viewers along for a trip to the Moon with astronauts on the Artemis mission, which is targeted for 2023. December 11, 2020, the last date for proposal submission.
“We’re looking for partners to use advanced technologies, imagery applications, and approaches that will go beyond our standard coverage on NASA TV. We want to capture the awe of Apollo for a new generation — the Artemis Generation. Just as people were glued to the TV 50 years ago as astronauts took the first steps on the Moon, we want to bring people along in this new era of exploration.” – Jim Bridenstine, NASA Administrator.
The proposal mostly focuses on using innovative technologies like virtual reality, 360-degree view camera systems, advanced imagery, or other devices that a partner may fly on the moon mission to augment NASA imagery.
