Artemis 1 lunar rocket “ready” for November 14 launch, NASA says

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

Artemis 1 stack of missions, consisting of a massive Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft, is scheduled to launch again at Launch Pad 39B from NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida at 12:01 a.m. EDT (04:01 GMT) on Friday (Nov. 4). The SLS stack has been on the pad on three previous occasions, once each in March and June for pre-launch fueling tests, and again in mid-August for two failed launch attempts. The rocket was then jettisoned back to the VAB on September 27 to ride out Hurricane Ianwhere it has been undergoing repairs and pre-flight checks ever since.
