The NASA Artemis I spacecraft is getting ready to launch on August 29 between 8:33 AM and 10:33 AM ET on a trip to the moon. People who wish to see the historic event live will be able to do so on NASA channels.
Both NASA TV and the agency’s website offer access to the event. On the same day, the live Artemis I broadcast is scheduled to start at 12 AM ET. It will cover launch-related events from Florida’s NASA Kennedy Space Center.
No people would be travelling with the mission. The Artemis programme, which intends to transport people to the moon and eventually learn more about Mars, has now reached its initial stage.
Artemis I launch and live telecast
On August 29, the live telecast is scheduled to start at 12 AM ET. The official launch will begin between 8:33 and 10:33 ET. By visiting NASA’s website and NASA TV, fans may watch the entire event live.
On August 27 at 10:23 AM ET, the countdown to the formal launch is scheduled to start. Over the weekend following the countdown, mission engineers will start the Orion spacecraft. They’ll also recharge the batteries and perform one last inspection of the preparations.
Before launching Artemis I, the launch team is said to hold a briefing to go through the weather on Sunday night or Monday morning. Eight hours prior to the planned launch, the team will start fueling the rocket’s core stage if the weather seems stable. Five hours before launch, fuel will be added to the upper stage.
An hour prior to the launch time, the last NASA test director briefing will take place. According to reports, 40 minutes before the launch time, the 30-minute countdown will begin.
