The Artemis I mission is launched. The Space Launch Systems rocket took off


At 8:47 a.m. Kyiv time, a Space Launch Systems rocket was launched from the Kennedy Space Center on Cape Canaveral.

Its job is to take the Orion ship into space. The ship will fly around the moon and must return to Earth. This mission is known as Artemis I.

The video of the rocket launch was broadcasted live.

The Artemis 1 mission is the first US attempt to prepare a manned flight to the Moon since the Apollo missions of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The SLS rocket is 100 meters long and is developed to launch vehicles into deep space.

The rocket is designed for deep space exploration and can take researchers farther than ever before.

Orion will spend approximately 3 weeks in space.

The spacecraft carries three mannequins. They look like astronauts and are equipped with sensors to provide data about what the crew members might experience during the trip to the moon.
