Update: The Artemis I launch attempt was scrubbed for today. Next launch attempt will be on September 2.
Watch live as NASA will be launching its Artemis I rocket this morning at
8:33 9:00 AM EST. This launch is historic for many reasons: this is the first time NASA is getting back to the moon in 50 years, and the mission is using the new Space Launch System (SLS) along with the Orion Space capsule. Once at destination, the capsule will be orbiting the moon to collect data. If successful, Artemis II is planned to launch in 2024 to land a human crew on the moon.
