The ambitious Artemis lunar missions’ first launch, Artemis 1, is now scheduled for November 14. The announcement of the date follows two unsuccessful launch attempts. The Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft for the Artemis I flight test will begin rolling out launch pad 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida ahead of launch, according to a news release from the agency. On November 14, this 69-minute launch window will begin at 12:07 am Eastern Time.
The journey from the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) to the launch pad for the SLS rocket and the Orion spacecraft has already started. According to the press release, the Moon rocket will make a programmed stop once it is outside of the VAB high-bay doors to allow the team to place the crew access arm on the mobile launcher before continuing to the launch pad.
It continues that it will take eight to twelve hours to get to the launchpad. Once the rocket has arrived at the launch site, the US space agency will release an update.
