NASA to stream return to the Moon in 4K UHD

After the launch was scrubbed on Monday, NASA is no targeting Saturday 3rd September for lift off

NASA will live stream the launch of its Artemis I rocket in 4K on its UHD channel.

Artemis 1 was originally due to launch on Monday 29th September but the take-off was scrubbed due to an issue with one of the four RS-25 engines in the SLS’ core stage during the countdown.

It was again scrubbed on Saturday, 3rd September due to a hydrogen leak.

The next available launch window is between 19th September and 4th October, with the launch currently pencilled in for Tuesday 27th September.

Artemis 1 will be the first integrated test of NASA’s Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and the ground systems at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The agency believes the uncrewed flight test around the Moon will pave the way for a crewed flight test and future human lunar exploration as part of Artemis.

The live broadcast of the launch also will include celebrity appearances by Jack Black, Chris Evans, and Keke Palmer, as well as a special performance of The Star-Spangled Banner by Josh Groban and Herbie Hancock.
