Artemis 1 on track for launch: how to watch it live

You can watch the launch live above, starting at 12:30am LIVE UPDATES: 4pm – Cryo tank has started and seems to be going well. It will take 6 hours to complete this process. 5:00 p.m.: Liquid hydrogen rapid fill in the core stage is underway. 5:30 p.m. 30 p.m.: Liquid hydrogen rapid fill of the core stage is complete. Now, there is a change to “topping mode” where the booster is recharged. Things are progressing as scheduled. Full coverage below: NASA held a teleconference Monday night to discuss the upcoming launch of Artemis 1. The launch date had previously been set for November 14, but NASA rescheduled the date for Wednesday, November 16. . because of Nicole. It is scheduled for 1:04 a.m. Wednesday with a two-hour launch window. The flight will kick off a series of Artemis missions with the goal of establishing a permanent base on the moon that will ultimately lead astronauts to explore Mars. NASA leaders met Monday to discuss preparations for the next launch attempt, which they determined is still on track for Wednesday. The weather was not the only thing that has delayed success. Its initial release was canceled on August 29, mainly due to an engine cooling issue. On September 3, its second scheduled launch date, a hydrogen leak was discovered, further pushing the timeline back. The spacecraft did not survive Hurricane Nicole completely unscathed. Officials said some of the putty on Orion’s launch abort system came loose during the storm. Technicians have also been working to replace an electrical connector. But NASA said the connector will not prevent the launch. “We know we have redundancy in these other measurements, and we’re still good for launch. The unanimous recommendation to the team was that we were in a good position to go ahead and proceed to launch countdown with these measurements,” said Jeremy Parsons, NASA deputy manager. As for the weather, there is still an 80% chance of favorable launch weather. “Temperatures should be near 70 degrees with fairly constant south-southwesterly winds at 10 to 15 knots up to 200 feet,” said NASA’s Melody Lovon. One of the popular places to see a launch will not be available this time. Jetty Park and Campground will be closed. Crews are still clearing debris left over from Hurricane Nicole and the park will not be cleaned up in time for the launch.
