    Artemis 1 moon rocket launch still on for Nov. 16 after Nicole storm

    NASA’s Artemis 1 moon rocket survived Tropical Storm Nicole’s wrath in good shape and remains on track to launch next Wednesday (Nov. 16) as planned, agency officials said.

    Nicole slammed into Florida’s Space Coast on Thursday (Nov. 10) as a Category 1 hurricane, lashing the region with strong winds and driving rain before weakening to a tropical storm. The Artemis 1 stack — a Space Launch System (SLS) megarocket topped by an Orion capsule — took the storm’s punch, enduring it in the open at Pad 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC).
