Follow live as NASA targets 2:17 p.m. EDT Saturday, Sept. 3, for the launch of its massive Space Launch System rocket on a mission to the moon known as Artemis I.

The 322-foot rocket and Orion capsule have a two-hour window to fly from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, where weather conditions are expected to be 60% “go” at liftoff. If they need it, teams have a two-hour window to fly from pad 39B.
