NASA MEDIA TELECON FOR ARTEMIS I WDR ROLL-OUT, Mar 14, 2022, virtual, 5:30 pm ET

NASA will hold a media telecon on March 14, 2022 at 5:30 pm ET following the Test Readiness Review for the Wet Dress Rehearsal (WDR) test of the Artemis I system.  Artemis I is an uncrewed test flight of the Space Launch System (SLS) and Orion crew spacecraft.  The date for that launch will be determined after this WDR test has been conducted and the results analyzed.
