The launch countdown will officially begin two days earlier on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 12:27 a.m. Artemis I is the first test of NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, the ground systems, and an uncrewed Orion spacecraft. This mission is the path to a crewed test flight and future human lunar exploration.
The SLS rocket and Orion spacecraft arrived back to the launch pad Friday, Nov. 4 at about 8:30 a.m. after engineers previously rolled the rocket back to the Vehicle Assembly Building on Sept. 26 before Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida. This was after two unsuccessful previous launch attempts.
