The Artemis 1 Moon Mission team at Aerojet Rocketdyne in Chatsworth is building and testing the RS-25 engines that will power the Artemis 1 Moon rocket. Company officials say based on recent engine testing NASA has scheduled late August for the FIRST launch to orbit around the Moon without astronauts. The results of that expedition will determine when astronauts, including the first woman and the first woman of color, will land on the Moon.

We can follow the progress of this historic space mission on the rocket.com website.
