NASA’s moon rocket is back on the pad at Cape Canaveral for another launch attempt, following more repairs. The Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft for the Artemis I mission departed its Florida hangar in the middle of the night and completed the 4-mile trip shortly after sunrise Friday. NASA is aiming for a launch attempt in mid-November.
NASA says a spacecraft that plowed into a small, harmless asteroid millions of miles away last month succeeded in shifting its orbit. “This mission shows that NASA is trying to be ready for whatever the universe throws at us,” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said Tuesday.
The Hubble and Webb space telescopes captured this week's asteroid strike, as NASA's Dart spacecraft slammed into the Dimorphos asteroid in the first planetary defense test of its kind. NASA on Thursday released pictures of the dramatic event.
