Watch the Artemis 1 lunar mission roll out of the pad on Friday

NASA plans to launch its Artemis 1 lunar mission off the launch pad on Friday evening (July 1), and you can watch the slow-motion action live.

The Artemis stack 1 — one Space Launch System (SLS) topped by an Orion crew capsule – is scheduled to take off from Pad 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida at 6:00 p.m. EDT Friday (2200 GMT), pending good weather. The duo will head to KSC’s cavernous Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), making the 6.4 kilometer (4 mile) trip in eight to 12 hours to the top of the massive crawler vehicle 2.
