Vice President Kamala Harris arrives in Florida for Artemis launch

On Monday morning, NASA will attempt to launch its moon rocket for the first time, and Vice President Kamala Harris will be there.

Harris and the second guy, Doug Emhoff, want to attend the launch of the brand-new Space Launch Systems rocket as part of the Artemis I mission from Kennedy Space Center.

At 8:33 a.m., the two-hour launch window begins. Launch Pad 39B is where the rocket is anticipated to take off from.

Before Harris gives a speech about the launch at 12 p.m., she and Emhoff will also take a tour of the advancements in the technology for the Artemis II and III missions.

The first lunar landing attempt by NASA is called Artemis I. The 42-day, unmanned mission will orbit the moon and test the SLS and Orion spacecraft’s endurance in space, as well as the endurance of the new heat shield.

If the mission is a success, NASA will launch Artemis II on a crewed trip in 2024, during which the spacecraft will once again circle the Moon. If it is effective, Artemis III might see the lunar landings as early as 2025.

As part of her responsibilities as vice president, Harris serves as head of the National Space Council.
