NASA is preparing to launch its largest rocket ever on a moon and beyond mission.

At Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Artemis I was the first integrated test of the agency's Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and ground systems.

The uncrewed flight test around the moon, according to NASA's website, will pave the way for future crewed flights and further lunar exploration by astronauts in the coming years.

SLS rocket, which 322 feet tall and weighs nearly 6 million pounds will powered four RS-25 engines, each of which will burn 735,000 gallons of liquid propellant to generate 2 million pounds of thrust

According to NASA, its twin rocket boosters burn more than 2 million pounds of solid propellant to produce more than 7 million pounds of thrust.

The rocket is scheduled to launch on Monday, Aug. 29, during a two-hour window that begins at 8:33 a.m. EDT (6:33 a.m. MDT).

NASA Television, the NASA app, and the agency's website will broadcast live coverage of the pre-launch, launch, and post-launch events.
