NASA’s Artemis is hours from launch (maybe)

NASA mission management have stated that the Artemis 1 launch is a go. This will a test of the SLS rocket to test readiness to bring Astronauts back to the moon in a few years.

A successful launch would be a key milestone for NASA’s Artemis program, which aims to put the first woman and first person of color on the lunar surface. The agency has not launched a space vehicle designed to send astronauts to the moon since 1972.

The initial launch was scheduled for August, which got called off for a faulty engine sensor.
