Artemis I has (finally) launched, kickstarting NASA’s return to the moon

After false starts and weather delays, NASA’s most powerful rocket ever successfully lifted off. The uncrewed Orion spacecraft now embarks on a four-week mission.

At 1:47 a.m. ET on November 16, the most powerful rocket ever launched tore through the thick air of the Florida night. The 30-story flying machine, known as the Space Launch System (SLS), leapt skyward atop a blindingly bright exhaust flame that illuminated the crowds of spectators.
