NASA turns desert sand into glass testing rocket for a mission to the Moon

Nasa'S Centro Espacial Kennedy could see its first launch of a massive Luafoguete Desde a 1973, Enquanto o agência espacial prepares to launch its Artemis I mission on 29 agosto.

The uncrewed test flight of Nasa’s Space Launch System rocket and the Orion spacecraft is slated as being necessary first steps at the federal agency before eventually getting human space boots back on the Moon by 2025.

Artemis I is the first test flight for SLS and Orion and will serve as a crucial test for making sure all the related systems function properly in space before the first humans climb aboard for Artemis II in 2023.

The mission is scheduled to last 42 days and will include a flyby that will take the spacecraft just 62 miles from the lunar surface, after which it will enter a wide orbit around the Moon for six days in order to collect flight data.

Nasa said that it will roll its rocket to the launch pad three days early, now targeting the evening of Tuesday 16 August to begin moving the giant launch vehicle ahead of the 29 August launch.

Nasa to roll its big Moon rocket to launch pad on Tuesday, three days early

Nasa will roll its massive Moon rocket to the launch pad three days early, now targeting the evening of Tuesday 16 August to begin moving the giant launch vehicle out of the Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Once Nasa’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket is on the launch pad, preparations will begin for the first ever test flight of the big rocket currently scheduled for 8.33am EDT on 29 agosto.

Nasa officials outline 29 August Artemis I Moon mission

Nasa’s long-awaited Retorna ao Lua could begin as soon as 29 agosto, the space agency announced earlier this month during a press conference.

“The Saturn five took us to the moon, half a century ago,” Nasa Administrator Bill Nelson disse. "Agora, as we embark on the first Artemis test flight, we recall this agency’s storied past, but our eyes are focused not on the immediate future, but out there.”

Artemis is Nasa’s new Moon program, and the upcoming flight on 29 August is dubbed Artemis I. It will be an uncrewed test flight to test Nasa’s huge Moon rocket, the Space Launch System, or SLS, and the Orion spacecraft, which will fly to, em volta, and beyond the Moon before returning to Earth 42 dias depois.
