Artemis 1 Rocket Launch News: NASA has successfully launched the Artemis 1 rocket to the Moon after two failed attempts. This mega rocket space launch system travels quite far from the moon. Artemis 1 is very different and powerful than the habitable spaceships we often hear about. The Artemis 1 mission is NASA’s first step to the moon for the first time in 50 years. It’s also part of his NASA plan to go to Mars by 2030.

It launched on Wednesday, November 16th at 0648 UTC (6:48 AM) from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA. Then, by 0657 UTC, NASA reported that the SLS rocket had reached main engine cutoff on the mission timeline. At the same time, NASA also informed her that her RS-25 engine had stopped on time and the main stage had also separated.

The next step is to install a solar array so the rocket can be powered by sunlight. By the way, there is no crew on this flight. As such, the experimental unmanned flight will travel 64,000 kilometers (40,000 miles) from the moon.

The mission duration is 25 days, 11 hours and 36 minutes. The Space Launch System (SLS) will return to Earth on December 11, 2022 after traveling a total distance of 2.09 million km (1.3 million miles). It was the first in a series of increasingly complex missions designed to land humans on the Moon since December 1972.

The new SLS in use is the most powerful rocket NASA has ever launched. It does not move to the moon or its vicinity. Even small satellites will be deployed far more than any other spacecraft designed to transport humans.

Loaded into the rocket’s Orion Crew Capsule is a strange mix of mannequins, artifacts, memorabilia and weightlessness indicators. Its main purpose is to practice spacecraft operations and check various aspects to ensure that the spacecraft is safe for future crew members.

NASA plans to launch Artemis 2, the first manned Artemis mission to space, in 2024 using a more powerful version of its Space Launch Systems rocket. Soon after, the space agency will launch her Artemis 3 mission in 2025, aiming to land the first woman and first man near the moon’s south pole.

It doesn’t stop here. In 2025, NASA’s Artemis 4 mission will take astronauts to a mini lunar station called “Gateway.”
