Artemis I: How to watch NASA moon mission launch

For the first time in 50 years, a spacecraft is preparing to launch to the moon.

The Artemis I mission includes a Space Launch System Rocket and an Orion spacecraft.

The liftoff target is on August 29 between 8.33 am ET and 10.33 am ET from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The agency will share live coverage in English and Spanish before, during and after the Artemis I launch on its website and on NASA TV.

The broadcast will begin at 12 am ET as supercold propellant is loaded into the SLS rocket.

NASA will also conduct a post-launch briefing and the agency will share the first Earth views from cameras onboard the Orion spacecraft.

Orion's journey will last 42 days as it travels to the moon, loops around it and returns to Earth.

The capsule will land in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of San Diego on October 10.
