ARTEMIS I LAUNCH, Aug 29, 2022?, KSC, 8:33 am ET

NASA is targeting three days at the end of August and early September for the first launch of the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft — the Artemis I mission.  It is an uncrewed test flight around the Moon.

NASA officials stress that the dates — August 29, September 2, and September 5 — are “placeholders” and they still have a lot of work to do to get ready so could change.

The launch times and mission durations for launch on one of those three days are:

  • On August 29, the 2 hour launch window opens at 8:33 am EDT and landing would be 42 days later on October 10.
  • On September 2, the 2 hour launch window opens at 12:48 pm EDT and landing would be 39 days later on October 11.
  • On September 5, the 1.5 hour launch window opens at 5:12 pm EDT and landing would be 42 days later on October 17.
