NASA sets late August and early September launch dates for Artemis 1
Posted: Fri, Jul 29, 2022, 6:43 PM ET (2243 GMT)
NASA has set three potential launch dates in late August and early September for the first flight of the Space Launch System. The agency said it is targeting Aug. 29, Sept. 2 and Sept. 5 for the Artemis 1 launch, pending completion of work on the SLS and Orion spacecraft. If that work continues on schedule, NASA will roll the vehicle to the pad in mid-August, although the agency won't confirm a launch date until a flight readiness review about a week before. All three launch dates support "long-class" Artemis 1 missions, with Orion spending up to six weeks in cislunar space before splashing down in mid-October off the California coast.
