Send off day has at long last shown up for the uncrewed Artemis I mission to takeoff on an excursion around the moon.
It's something else as the 322-foot-tall (98-foot-tall) stack, comprising of the Space Launch System rocket and Orion shuttle, gleams in the early morning obscurity at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The stack is perched on memorable Launchpad 39B, where Apollo 10 and transport missions recently took off. Check out NASA's site and TV channel to watch the last arrangements and witness the send off.
Weather patterns stay 80% ideal for a send off toward the start of a window that opens at 8:33 a.m. what's more, shuts down at 10:33 a.m. ET, as per the most recent estimate.
In any case, a few issues have sprung up since the rocket started powering after 12 PM. The Artemis group is assessing the postponements to decide what it means for the send off.
Seaward tempests with the potential for lightning kept the group from starting the energizing system, because of start at 12 PM, for about 60 minutes.
The hold was lifted at 1:13 a.m. ET, and the failing system started to stack the rocket's center stage with supercold fluid oxygen and fluid hydrogen.
VP Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff are supposed to visit Kennedy Space Center Monday.
