NASA set to launch the Artemis I moon rocket today

The first mission in a complicated series of missions designed to facilitate further human exploration of the moon and eventually Mars will be launched by NASA on Monday morning.


The Artemis I project will launch an unmanned capsule around the moon for 42 days before it splashes back into the Pacific Ocean. The first Space Launch System will be launched during the operation.

Testing Orion’s new heat shield when it reenters Earth’s atmosphere at 25,000 mph is Artemis I’s first mission. The method that will probably result in one of the quickest reentries to date will require the capsule to endure the fiery plunge.

If everything goes as planned with the 322-foot rocket, an Artemis II mission with astronauts should accomplish roughly the same thing. As part of NASA’s plan to send people back to the moon for the first time since 1972, Artemis III will then attempt to land two astronauts there sometime after 2025.
