Human Landing System Simulation in the Vertical Motion Simulator (VMS)
February 4, 2021


NASA Astronaut Randy Bresnik in the VMS

The goal of NASA’s Artemis program is to return humans to the Moon, and the Vertical Motion Simulator (VMS) at NASA Ames Research Center is slated to play a key role. In January 2021, the VMS hosted representatives from Dynetics, including former astronauts Jim Dutton and Lee Archambault, and current astronaut Randy Bresnik, to fly lunar landing simulations of the Dynetics Human Landing System (HLS) vehicle. Over four days, the astronauts flew more than 200 simulated landings, providing important vehicle handling qualities data for vehicle designers.
