Artemis I will be the first incorporated test of NASAs new deep area expedition systems: the Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and the ground systems at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Throughout the objective, Orion will remain in area longer than any ship for astronauts has actually done without docking to a space station. With Artemis objectives, NASA will land the first lady and very first person of color on the Moon.
With Artemis missions, NASA will land the very first female and very first individual of color on the Moon. It will utilize innovative innovations to check out more of the lunar surface than ever previously. NASA will work together with industrial and worldwide partners and establish the first long-term presence on the Moon. Then, NASA will use what they find out on and around the Moon to take the next huge leap: sending out the very first astronauts to Mars.
Were returning to the Moon for scientific discovery, financial benefits, and motivation for a new generation of explorers: the Artemis Generation. While preserving American management in exploration, we will build an international alliance and explore deep area for the benefit of all.

NASAs Artemis I mission is targeted to release no earlier than August 29, 2022. The two-hour launch window opens at 8:33 a.m. EDT (5:33 a.m. PDT) on Monday, August 29.
Artemis I will be the first incorporated test of NASAs new deep area exploration systems: the Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and the ground systems at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Artemis I is the very first in a series of significantly complex missions. It will be an uncrewed flight test that will supply a foundation for human deep area exploration, and show our dedication and ability to extend human existence to the Moon and beyond.
It will travel 280,000 miles (450,000 km) from Earth, thousands of miles beyond the Moon over the course of about a four to six-week objective. During the mission, Orion will remain in space longer than any ship for astronauts has actually done without docking to an area station.
