NASA’s most powerful rocket
This will be the first flight of the Artemis-1 new space launch system. It is a heavy lift rocket capable of being put into orbit as NASA mentions it. It has the most powerful engines ever launched compared to rockets.
According to media reports, if the first two Artemis missions are successful, then NASA aims to bring astronauts back to the Moon, including the first woman to set foot on the lunar surface in early 2025. Although many experts believe that the deadline can be extended a little further.

Why is this mission special?
Crew has not been used in any way in the Artemis-1 mission. It will be the first in a series of increasingly complex missions to the Moon, which will eventually return humans to Earth’s only satellite. This test is very important, because the actual working of the Orion crew capsule will be seen. This training will take about a month in the space environment of the Moon. Over the course of a nearly six-week-long mission, SLS and Orion will travel a distance of about 65,000 kilometers to the Moon and back.
