NASA’s Artemis 1 Launch

  • NASA’s Artemis 1 mission was launched from Launch Complex 39B of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 12.17 PM IST on November 16, 2022.
  • Around eight minutes after launch, the core stage engines cut off and the core stage separated from the rest of the rocket.
  • After this, the Orion spacecraft was propelled by the Interim Cryogenic Propulsion Stage (ICPS).
  • NASA also deployed the Orion spacecraft’s four solar arrays.
  • After completing “translunar injection,” Orion separated itself from ICPS and is on its way to lunar orbit.
  • Artemis II will follow in Artemis I’s footsteps.
