November 16, at 1:47 am E.T. the Artemis I mission finally commenced as SLS made her maiden voyage to the moon.
Sept 3. Artemis I has failed to reach space once again. This time due to an issue with hydrogen leaking from a quick disconnect point where the fuel line reaches the rocket booster.
Aug. 29, two hours before lift off, during the countdown NASA found a temperature issue with one of the four RS-25 engines that prevented teams from continuing with the mission. More information about the next attempt is expected Tuesday evening from NASA.
NASA moved the time line for the SLS’s third roll out up by over a day. After a slight delay due to lightning in the area SLS began to roll from the VAB at 10:00 pm E.T. on August 16th. Now it will reside on Launch Complex 39B until it lifts off for the first time on a journey around the moon, going further and longer than any human rated spacecraft has gone before.
June 6, 12:01 am, NASA’s SLS rocket has once again left the VAB on a 4.2 mile journey to Launch Complex 39B were teams will hopefully run through a full Wet Dress Rehearsal and give us a target launch date for the Artemis I mission around the Moon.
After an eleven-hour journey that began yesterday, SLS now sits on LC-39B as the sun begins to rise over the space coast. The Artemis Era has arrived.
