We're heading back to space and there's a lot of excitement as Artemis 1 is now on it's journey. We are proud of all the different ways that Sorbothane anti-vibration visco-elastic polymers have enabled the progression of aerospace technology.
Sorbothane ultra-soft polyurethane rubber and space exploration have gone hand-in-hand for decades. Whether it is sensitive electronics, cameras, or other payloads that engineers need to protect, we have helped. There are multiple characteristics that make Sorbothane the best option for missions.
On Wednesday, November 16, 2022, the Artemis I mission will took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This launch of the Orion spacecraft atop the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket is the first moon rocket launch by the US in 50 years. The spacecraft will travel 1.3 million miles and re-enter Earth's atmosphere at 24,500 mph (Mach 32).
This mission will test multiple systems in preparation for the first crewed launch with Artemis II. We're proud to support space exploration and research. We'll also be on-hand at the launch. Isolate IT continues to support multiple space agencies and rocket companies as a materials supplier for Sorbothane anti-vibration mounts and films.
