NASA reveals launch dates for Artemis I through the first half of 2023 - Ars Technica
May 17, 2022 1 min, 15 secs

NASA has published a list of potential launch dates for the Artemis I mission (see PDF), starting as early as July 26 and running through June of next year.

The Artemis I mission will encompass the debut launch for NASA's large Space Launch System rocket and the second orbital flight of its Orion spacecraft.

Mission planners eliminate potential launch dates that would send Orion into extended eclipses during the flight.".

However, the inclusion of dates through the first half of 2023 does raise an obvious question: Does NASA think the Artemis I mission—which was originally supposed to launch in 2016—could be delayed once again and slip into next year.

If all goes well with final preparations before the Artemis I mission, it seems possible that NASA could launch in late August.

NASA Administrator Bill Nelson appeared to confirm this during a US House subcommittee hearing on Tuesday when he said, "We're going to launch it in August.".

During a call with the media on May 6, NASA's chief of human exploration, Jim Free, said the space agency wanted to roll the SLS rocket and Orion spacecraft out to the launch pad in late May and would target "early or mid" June for a wet dress rehearsal test.

Due to the ongoing nature of this work, it no longer seems likely that the large rocket will roll out of the Vehicle Assembly Building this month, which probably would push the start of the next wet dress attempt into late June at the earliest.
