Media Advisory – New launch date for Artemis I


NASA is continuing to monitor Tropical Storm Nicole and has decided to re-target a launch for the Artemis I mission for Wednesday, November 16, pending safe conditions for employees to return to work, as well as inspections after the storm has passed.

LONGUEUIL, QC, Nov. 9, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ – At 1:04 a.m. on November 16, NASA’s Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft are scheduled to launch for the first time, as part of the Artemis I mission to the Moon.

Join Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut David Saint-Jacques at CSA headquarters for a special launch viewing event. CSA experts will be on site and available for interviews as well as Canadian youth who participated in the CSA’s Junior Astronaut camp. The event will also be broadcasted on the CSA’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.

This uncrewed test flight will mark the return to the Moon after almost 50 years and the beginning of a new era of lunar exploration. Following a successful Artemis I mission, a CSA astronaut will take part in Artemis II, the first crewed mission to the Moon since Apollo 17 in 1972.
