3, 2, 1… Lift-Off of the Artemis 1 Mission to the Moon NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center

Hear the countdown and see how NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS), the world’s most powerful rocket, will send the Orion spacecraft to the Moon on the  Artemis 1 Mission. This video takes you through the pre-launch sequence at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida and through all the flight operations as SLS launches Orion and sends it on to lunar orbit.

Artemis was the twin sister of Apollo and goddess of the Moon in Greek mythology. Now, she personifies our path to the Moon as the name of NASA’s program to return astronauts to the lunar surface by 2024, including the first woman and the next man. When they land, our American astronauts will step foot where no human has ever been before: the Moon’s South Pole.
Working with U.S. companies and international partners, NASA will push the boundaries of human exploration forward to the Moon for this program. As a result of Artemis, NASA will be able to establish a sustainable human presence on the Moon by 2028 to uncover new scientific discoveries, demonstrate new technological advancements, and lay the foundation for private companies to build a lunar economy.

NASA’s mobile launcher made its last solo trek to Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Pad 39B for final testing before its next roll to the pad with the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion for the launch of Artemis 1. As part of NASA’s Moon to Mars exploration approach, the Artemis program at the Moon will pave the way for sending humans to Mars.

NASA Conducts Successful Water Flow Test with Mobile Launcher NASAKennedy

A successful water flow test with the mobile launcher at Kennedy Space Center’s Pad 39B on July 2, 2019, put NASA one step closer to returning astronauts to the Moon by 2024, with the goal of sending humans to Mars. It was the first of nine tests to verify the sound suppression system is ready for launch of NASA’s Space Launch System for the first Artemis mission.

Approximately 450,000 gallons of water was released from an elevated water tank and distributed through large diameter piping and valves to water nozzles located in the Pad B flame deflector, the mobile launcher flame hole and on the launcher’s blast deck in just 45 seconds. That’s enough water to fill 45 residential swimming pools! The system reached a peak flow rate of 1.1 million gallons per minute.
