NASA is now targeting no earlier than Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2022, for the launch of the Artemis 1 moon mission on the first Space Launch System rocket. A backup date is available on Oct. 2, 2022. The new launch targets are a four-day slip for Artemis 1.
Watch live as our mega Moon rocket launches an uncrewed Orion spacecraft on a six-week mission around the Moon and back to Earth. During #Artemis I, Orion will lift off aboard the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and travel 280,000 miles (450,000 km) from Earth and 40,000 miles (64,000 km) beyond the far side of the Moon, carrying science and technology payloads to expand our understanding of lunar science, technology developments, and deep space radiation. Through Artemis missions, NASA will land the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon, paving the way for a long-term lunar presence and serving as a steppingstone to send astronauts to Mars, in the video published by NASA as “Artemis 1 Launch to the Moon (Official NASA Broadcast) – Date & Time TBD“, below:.
NASA is gearing up to launch its Artemis program, which aims to return astronauts to the moon for the first time in decades. WSJ explains the challenges behind this historic mission, and why it’s a critical step in getting humans on the moon by 2025.

NASA’s Artemis I launch has been delayed twice because of problems with their main fuel: liquid hydrogen. It’s not a new one for the space agency. As NASA described it, “hydrogen is difficult to work with.” Meanwhile, SpaceX has switched to methane for their Mars-bound Starship spacecraft. WSJ explains why NASA still uses the leak-prone fuel, in the video published by Wall Street Journal as “Why NASA’s Artemis Has Fuel-Leak Problems That SpaceX Doesn’t | WSJ“, below:
NASA scrubbed Monday’s launch of Artemis I, the mega-rocket that aims to go beyond the moon and return to Earth. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson joined CNN’s Alisyn Camerota and Victor Blackwell to answer viewers’ questions about the postponed launch, the moon and Mars, in the video published by CNN as “‘A moon race’: Neil deGrasse Tyson answers your Artemis 1 questions“, below:
NASA has once again waved off an attempt to launch its massive new moon rocket on an uncrewed test mission because of technical issues, in the video published by CNN as “Why NASA cancelled launch of massive new rocket“, below:
