    Artemis 1 moon rocket ‘ready to go’ for Nov. 14 launch, NASA says

    While NASA officials stressed in a media teleconference today (Nov. 3) that the agency’s highly anticipated Artemis 1 moon mission will be challenging, they stated they are confident in the upcoming launch attempt on Nov. 14.

    The Artemis 1 mission stack, consisting of the massive Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft, is scheduled to once again roll out to Launch Pad 39B from NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida at 12:01 a.m. EDT (0401 GMT) on Friday (Nov. 4). The SLS stack has been to the pad on three previous occasions, once each in March and June for pre-launch fueling tests, and again in mid-August for two abortive launch attempts. The rocket was then rolled back into the VAB on Sept. 27 to ride out Hurricane Ian, where it has been ever since undergoing repairs and pre-flight checks.
