The huge SLS rocket and its Orion capsule is scheduled to roll out to the launch pad March 17.

Teams are starting to retract the "kitchen drawer" platforms surrounding the first rocket that will launch a NASA Artemis mission toward the moon.

Retracting the platforms surrounding the huge Space Launch System (SLS) rocket at NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida is a key step to safely sending the rocket and spacecraft to the launch pad on March 17 ahead of the Artemis 1 launch, which is expected to take place no earlier than May.

The uncrewed Artemis 1 will send an Orion spacecraft around the moon, to make sure both SLS and Orion are ready for crewed missions.

The first crewed Artemis mission, Artemis 2, will send astronauts around the moon in 2024, if all goes according to plan.

Artemis 3 will land people on the lunar surface no earlier than 2025, though a 2026 liftoff is probably more likely given some issues identified by NASA's inspector general.
