BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — The rollout of Artemis 1 on Florida’s Space Coast is set for Tuesday evening.
The uncrewed flight test around the moon is the first in a series of missions that will land the first woman and the first person of color on the moon.
NASA is still targeting Aug. 29 for liftoff, with a two-hour launch window opening at 8:33 a.m.
It all begins with a four-mile journey for NASA’s SLS rocket and Orion spacecraft, from the Vehicle Assembly Building to launchpad 39B at Kennedy Space Center. The high bay doors are open for a trip that could take up to 12 hours.
An uncrewed flight test around the moon and the 42-day mission will begin with the liftoff of the world’s most powerful rocket.
