(La Porte, IN) - Spaceship pieces from La Porte were part of NASA’s most recent space mission.
Artemis I returned successfully from the moon on Sunday. Parts of it were manufactured at La Porte’s Howmet Aerospace. The main engines on the spacecraft contained castings from the La Porte facility.
Howmet team members signed banners that were hung on the fence outside the NASA launch site at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The Orion spacecraft for the Artemis I mission splashed down in the Pacific Ocean after a 25.5-day mission to the Moon.
