how to watch NASA’s Artemis 1 rocket launch on August 29th


August 29th will see NASA launch its next-generation rocket to the moon, and so can you by following this guide on how to watch the NASA moon mission. Artemis 1 (or Artimis I) is the first planned uncrewed test in NASA’s Artemis programme. The flight will launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida – first used in the first-ever Moon landing rocket’s launch, the Saturn V, on November 9th, 1967. 

The upcoming moon mission includes NASA’s most powerful rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS), a 98-meter-tall aircraft, and NASA’s next-generation capsule, the Orion. NASA will use its Sound Suppressing System on the launch pad to reduce the launch sound of this power-loaded rocket.

While the Artemis 1 mission won’t include any humans on the rocket, NASA plans an Artemis 2 mission and Artemis 3 mission by 2025, taking the same route to the moon with humans onboard (if mission 1 is successful). The Monday Artemis 1 mission is a flight test and principle checks for Artemis 2 and Artemis 3 endeavours.

Recent reports suggested that the Artemis 1 mission might be delayed, citing the weather criteria for a flawless launch. However, a blog post from NASA says the weather’s 70 percent favourable and gives a green signal for the Artemis 1 mission.
