BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – NASA’s Artemis I mission is the first mission in exploration systems built for the crew that will travel around the Moon since Apollo and is targeted for no earlier than March 2022 from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Brevard County.
The uncrewed Artemis I mission will launch from Kennedy’s Launch Complex 39B and is the first integrated flight test of NASA’s Artemis deep space exploration systems.
The first in a series of increasingly complex missions, the mission will provide a foundation for human deep space exploration and demonstrate NASA’s commitment and capability to establish a long-term presence at the Moon and beyond.
NASA will set an official target launch date after a successful wet dress rehearsal test – one of the final tests before launch involving fuel loaded into the rocket – currently planned for late February.
