The launch of the SLS rocket as part of the Artemis I mission will take place tomorrow morning, November 16. As in previous attempts, NASA will broadcast it on its channel. Mission leaders say that this time, the chances of something going wrong are minimal.
Artemis I Launch
There are literally a few hours left before the launch of the giant Space Launch System rocket designed to fly people to the Moon. Its first mission, called Artemis I, will be unmanned and test. Its start is scheduled for 8:24 a.m. on November 16, GMT+2.
This time, Ukrainians will have to get up earlier and hope that it will be worth it in order to admire this unique spectacle. As during previous launch attempts, NASA will broadcast the entire process on its channel: https://www.nasa.gov/nasalive
The broadcast will begin at 5:30 a.m. GMT+2. Those who turn it on at this early time will be able to admire the process of refueling the rocket and its passage of the latest tests. At the same time, it is yet to be a deep night at the spaceport in Florida.
Previous launch attempts
The epic with the launch of SLS has been going on for the whole of 2022. NASA called on journalists to register for its coverage back in January. But the first dress rehearsal took place in March, and its repetition lasted until June. Many said that these procedures could continue for a long time.
NASA decided to launch a rocket in September. However, several attempts to start ended in nothing, first because of problems with the engines and hydrogen leaks, then because of the weather. And after that, Hurricane Ian forced the engineers to bring the rocket back to the VAB altogether.
After the specialists took advantage of the moment and fixed all the technical problems on the SLS, they took it back to the launch pad. But then a new hurricane Nicole hit, which the rocket happily survived.
Now experts are convincing that all technical problems have been fixed. And forecasters promise a 90 percent probability of favorable weather for the launch. But if something else goes wrong, then NASA will have two more backup dates: November 19 and 25.
