NASA is preparing to launch a new giant rocket on its first flight into space

NASA has set August 29 as the date for the launch of the 98-meter-high rocket carrying an unmanned capsule on its first mission to space, according to Al Arabiya.

A giant rocket belonging to the US Aeronautics and Space Administration “NASA” began a land journey that extends for hours to the launch pad in preparation for its first test flight in space later this month.

NASA has set August 29 as the date for the launch of the 98-meter-high rocket carrying an unmanned capsule on its first mission to space.

The long-awaited test flight will be critical in assessing the progress of NASA’s Artemis program, which has cost the United States billions of dollars in hopes of returning humans to the lunar surface as training for future missions to Mars.

The rocket, developed by Boeing over the past decade, exited the assembly building at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Tuesday evening and began a six-kilometre journey to the launch pad. Transported at less than 1.6 kilometers per hour, this journey takes approximately 11 hours.

The rocket is atop the “Orion” astronaut capsule, which is a cockpit designed by Lockheed Martin. It is designed to separate from the rocket in space and transport humans to the lunar periphery, where they meet a separate spacecraft that will take them to the lunar surface.

But for the August 29 mission, called Artemis 1, the Orion capsule will be launched by a space launch system rocket without any humans and will orbit the moon before returning to Earth and landing in the ocean 42 days later.
