The unmanned Orion will launch atop the most powerful rocket in the world and fly farther than any spacecraft built for humans has ever flown. After several technical and weather related delays, Artemis 1 is scheduled once again to depart Kennedy Space Center on 11/23/2022 about 1:00 am. Artemis 1 will spend almost 38 days in space and travel about 1.3 million miles on its trip around the moon.

Artemis 1 will not roll to the pad if there is more than a 10% chance of lightening within 20 miles, more than a 5% chance of hail, peak winds exceeding 40 knots, or the temperature exceeds 95 degrees.
