‘Zero hour’ for NASA Artemis 1 moon mission launch on Aug. 29

Date:

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – It’s time for NASA’s new moon rocket.

With 8.8 million pounds of thrust, the rocket — dubbed the Space Launch System (SLS) — is designed to be more powerful than NASA’s mighty Saturn V. The Orion space capsule is a third larger than its Apollo ancestor. Yet neither spacecraft has passed the ultimate test: a trip to the moon and back.
