When Artemis I launches from Kennedy Space Center, it will take the Orion spacecraft to the moon and back, covering more than 1.3 million miles before splashing down in the Pacific Ocean.

The first launch attempt is scheduled for Monday, August 29, 2022, at 8:33 a.m. ET. Backup launch opportunities are available on September 2 and September 5.

The Orion capsule will take off from KSC’s Launch Pad 39-B atop a Space Launch System rocket. NASA will make Orion’s location available to the public via the Artemis Real-time Orbit Website (AROW).
