The launch of the Artemis 1 lunar rocket is still underway for November 16 after Storm Nicole

NASA’s Artemis 1 moon rocket survived the wrath of Tropical Storm Nicole in good shape and remains on track to launch next Wednesday (November 16) as scheduled, agency officials said.

Nicole slammed into Florida’s Space Coast Thursday (Nov. 10) as a Category 1 hurricane, battering the region with high winds and driving rain before weakening into a tropical storm. The Artemis Stack 1 – a Space Launch System (SLS) mega-rocket topped with an Orion capsule – took the storm’s punch, enduring it in the open at Pad 39B at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) from NASA.
