Artemis I: KSC Aerial View | NASA Astronauts Sunita & Matthew

Artemis I Moon Rocket: KSC Aerial View | NASA Astronauts Sunita & Matthew

NASA Artemis Astronaut Matthew Dominick: "Suni and I flew into NASA's Kennedy Space Center with a view of this giant moon rocket on the pad. People from around the world worked to get this rocket on the pad and now they are working through the weekend to get this beast through final testing."

Artemis I launch is currently scheduled for spring 2022.

NASA Astronaut Sunita L. Williams Official NASA Biography

Sunita L. Williams (Suni) was selected as an astronaut by NASA in 1998 and is a veteran of two space missions Expeditions 14/15 and 32/33. She is currently training for the first post-certification mission of Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft—the second crewed flight for that vehicleand her third long duration mission aboard the International Space Station.

NASA Artemis Astronaut Matthew Dominick Official NASA Biography

Matthew Stuart Dominick (born December 7, 1981; LCDR, USN) is a US Navy test pilot and a NASA astronaut candidate of the class of 2017. He has more than 1,600 hours of flight time in 28 aircraft, 400 carrier-arrested landings, 61 combat missions, and almost 200 flight test carrier landings. Matthew is part of an initial team of NASA astronauts—the Artemis Team—to help pave the way for the next lunar missions including sending the first woman and next man to walk on the lunar surface.

The first in a series of increasingly complex missions, Artemis I will be an uncrewed flight test that will provide a foundation for human deep space exploration, and demonstrate NASA's commitment and capability to extend human existence to the Moon and beyond.  It will travel 280,000 miles from Earth, thousands of miles beyond the Moon over the course of about a three-week mission. Orion will stay in space longer than any ship for astronauts has done without docking to a space station and return home faster and hotter than ever before.
