Hurricane Ian pushes Artemis 1 moon launch to mid-November

NASA’s historic Artemis 1 moon mission will now lift off in mid-November, if all goes according to plan.

The space agency had aimed to launch the uncrewed Artemis 1 on Tuesday (Sept. 27), but Hurricane Ian nixed that plan. The powerful storm forced NASA to roll Artemis 1 off Pad 39B at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and back into the safety of the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) early this week.
