The road to NASA’s Artemis 1 SLS megarocket moon launch pad

August 2022 is set to be an important month for the future of space exploration as it will see the first launch of the massive Space Launch System (SLS), the most powerful rocket ever built by humanity. The rocket will carry the uncrewed Orion spacecraft into space as part of the Artemis I mission.

“The next era of space exploration begins with the Artemis I launch,” SLS Associate program manager, Sharon Cobb, told Space.com. “Artemis will enable the first woman and first person of color to not only set foot on the moon but also to explore it along with international and commercial partners.”
