Astronauts Quarantined! SpaceX and NASA change launch dates
Kennedy Space Center has been busy as usual, and we are not referencing the very engaging and educational theme park aspect of the business. We are referencing the launch pad, where some of the coolest activities in Titusville are taking place. There has been a lot more focus on space with all of the recent launches happening, however the Crew-4 mission has had a couple of date changes already. The good news is the Axium Space Launch has indeed taken place on April 8th; this historic flight took the first private crew of four to the International Space Station. Originally the Crew-4 was due to launch before the AX-1 and due to timing issues, they traded places on the launch calendar.
NASA + SpaceX Delays Launch!

If you were planning on heading over to Kennedy Space Center at the end of this month to watch SpaceX and NASA carry four Astronauts to the International Space Station on March 30th, you are not alone. This was a super exciting launch we were all looking forward to. On March 18th, it was announced by their website linked below that the March 30th launch will be delayed until at least April 15th, 2022. The initial reasoning is to give additional time in between the Axium Space AX-1 mission and the SpaceX Crew-4 mission. For further details please see the official Axium press release - Axium Targets New Launch Dates.
Returning to the Moon starts now, Mars is next!
Do not look now, but the return to the Moon has begun with some pretty big, yet slow moving steps and an amazing end goal. Over at the Kennedy Space Center the long march has finally started towards the launch pad. Today, March 17th, 2022, the crews have began the journey to the Moon by taking the Artemis I rocket and the Orion Capsule on a grueling 4.4 mile mission to the actual launch pad. While this doesn't seem to be Earth shattering, the Artemis mega moon rocket will be moved at less than 1 mile per hour! The crawler transport does top out at .8 miles per hour which isn't too shabby when you consider the rocket and capsule combine for nearly 6 million pounds and is just over 322 foot long, so there is very little margin for error. NASA has already begun streaming the opening, here on their site - NASA Live | NASA.
