NASA’s Space Launch System started its first journey into space with a slow crawl ahead of it’s Artemis I launch attempt on Aug. 29 at 8:33am ET. The final rollout was moved up a day early to the evening of August 16th. Futuramic was at the NASA’s Kennedy Space Center to cover NASA’s Exploration Ground Systems transporting the Space Launch System megarocket rocket and the Orion Spacecraft from the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) to Launch Complex 39B for the Artemis I launch.
Futramic’s Chris Clark was on site, with multiple cameras, to capture the all night rollout.
Artemis is the first step in the next era of human exploration. Together with commercial and international partners, NASA will establish a sustainable presence on the Moon to prepare for missions to Mars. Artemis I, the first launch of the new Space Launch System rocket, will send an uncrewed Orion capsule around the moon and back.
