NASA’s Artemis I Moon Rocket Launch Set to Make History

NASA’s Artemis I Moon Rocket Launch Set to Make History

A quick recap of NASA’s history in space exploration segueing to Artemis serves as the opening video for the launch broadcast for the agency’s Artemis I Moon mission. The broadcast originates from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, where NASA’s Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft will lift off from Launch Complex 39B no earlier than November 16 on a mission beyond the Moon and back to Earth.

Live coverage of briefings and events will air on NASA Television, the NASA app, and the agency’s website at: https://www.nasa.gov/nasalive

3:30 p.m. (EST)– Coverage of the cryogenic fueling of the Space Launch System for launch on the Artemis I mission

10:30 p.m. (EST) – Coverage of the launch of the Space Launch System and the Orion spacecraft on the Artemis I mission (Launch scheduled at 1:04 a.m. EST Nov. 16)

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.

On the Artemis III Mission, NASA will land the first woman and the first person of color on the surface of the Moon, paving the way for a long-term lunar presence and serving as a steppingstone on the way to Mars.
