Historic Event: NASA Launches Artemis 1 Lunar Mission Today
The space agency will host the Artemis 1 launch webcast on August 29 to showcase the uncrewed launch on NASA’s Space Launch System’s first megarocket from Launch Pad 39B at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The launch day webcast featured special guests including actors Chris Evans, Jack Black and Keke Palmer. You can now see live views of the Artemis 1 moon rocket on its platform in the online live stream.
The last time such a powerful rocket shot off a KSC pad was in 1973, when a Saturn V moon rocket carried Skylab into orbit, marking the end of the Apollo era, so this month’s event should be everything. a show.
According to NASA, the space agency will provide comprehensive coverage of Artemis I pre-launch, launch and post-launch activities when it’s time to light the candle. This momentous uncrewed dress rehearsal around the moon will clear the way for a manned moon-bound test flight with Artemis 2 from 2024, and an actual lunar landing by 2025 as part of Artemis 3.
Those lucky enough to join the Artemis 1 show in Florida will enjoy the shock and awe of 8.8 million pounds of thrust as they fight against gravity and propel the sleek SLS rocket and Orion space capsule skyward. For the rest of us, NASA has just released its schedule for the live stream, to watch the mission from the safety and comfort of our homes.
