The SLS rocket is prepared for launch
On the last occasion it was aborted at the last moment
NASA has announced the second attempt to launch its Space Launch System (SLS) rocket into space after the previous time could not be completed successfully.
It is the first step in the Artemis program that wants to recover trips to the Moon and send the first female astronaut to the Earth’s satellite. For this, this trip will be launched not tripulated which aims to reach this territory.
NASA thus makes the second launch attempt after the first had to be suspended for liquid loss problems in one of its reactors.
ARTEMIS IA LAUNCH MISSION TIME
The launch will take place on next September 3 at 8:17 p.m. (CEST). It will take place through the Kennedy Space Center, in the United States, so there is an obvious time lag and it will be there at noon.
WHERE TO WATCH THE NASA LAUNCH
The broadcast of the launch will be totally free and can be seen on NASA’s YouTube channel as well as on the Space Agency’s social networks in any of its social networks.
