Find here all of our live #ARTEMIS

10:34 am : On the occasion of the launch of Artemis, franceinfo is launching the second season of its original podcast, “Mars, the new odyssey”. We are publishing a series of seven episodes called “The Lunar Stage”, to understand and analyze the issues around the Moon. This series can be listened to on the Radio France app and website, podcast platforms and franceinfo.fr.

09:34 : The takeoff of the giant rocket of the Artemis mission finally took place this morning at 7:47 am (Paris time), more than two months after the initial date of its launch. Technical problems, weather conditions… Our journalist Louis San returns to the unforeseen events that delayed the launch of the rocket to the Moon.

09:08 : 9 a.m., let’s take a look at the news of the day:

The Elysée calls for “great caution” on the origin of the missile which fell in Poland, which caused two deaths near the border with Ukraine. Russia denies any missile fire at Poland. For Volodymyr Zelensky, this explosion in Poland is a “message” from Russia to the G20. Follow our live.

Moscow fired “about” 100 missiles over Ukraine yesterday, hitting several critical energy infrastructures in different regions, and causing at least one death. Yesterday, “there was the biggest attack in the history of the energy sector, which affected all regions of Ukraine”, reacts this morning the Ukrainian energy transport network operator Ukrenergo.

The giant rocket of the Artemis mission successfully lifted off to the Moon this morning. Takeoff took place at 7:47 a.m. (Paris time). The Orion module deploys as planned after the successful launch of the rocket.

Former Republican President Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election last night, strongly criticizing the work of the Biden administration. Joe Biden’s reaction was quick: “Trump has failed America”, reacted the American president since the G20 summit in Bali (Indonesia).

08:14 : About 1h30 after the launch of the Artemis mission rocket, a final push from the upper stage should put the Orion capsule on its way to the Moon. She will join her in a few days. The module will then go around the Moon without landing there. It should orbit around her for about a week. This Artemis 1 mission should last a little over 25 days.

08:01 : Eight minutes after takeoff, the main stage separated as planned to fall back into the Pacific Ocean.

07:57 : Just after the takeoff of the giant rocket of the Artemis mission, the two boosters separated well. So far, everything is going as planned.

07:54 : Here are the images of the launch of the rocket of the Artemis mission, in the direction of the Moon:

07:49 : The giant rocket of the Artemis mission successfully takes off to the Moon!

07:48 : The takeoff of the giant rocket of the Artemis mission is a crucial step, because it must mark the validation of the launcher and the Orion module in which astronauts must travel in a few years to the Moon. The Artemis mission ultimately aims to install a manned base on the surface of the Earth’s natural satellite.

07:42 : Hello, you can follow the takeoff of the giant rocket of the Artemis mission in our direct. Takeoff is scheduled in five minutes!

07:42 : Hello FI A link for the live launch? Have a nice day!

07:41 : The planned hold has ended, and we are “go” for launch! We are now 10 minutes away from the liftoff of #Artemis I! TUNE IN NOW: https://t.co/kSdpaOlIcY https://t.co/vQSwLrHe7c

07:40 : The take-off of Artemis is approaching. It is now scheduled for 7:47 a.m. Paris time!

07:29 : NASA’s Nail also said “a rough calculation” of the work remaining shows a “no earlier than 1:45 am ET” launch, but there is still no new T-0 time.

07:37 : The takeoff of Artemis should not take place before 7:45 a.m., Paris time, warns NASA, because of the preparations still in progress.

06:54 : We are in our planned hold at T-10 minutes. Currently, the upper stage liquid hydrogen is 78% filled. Core stage has been topped off – both liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen are 100% filled. The ethernet switch has been replaced and will be verified.

06:53 : NASA will issue a new T-0 time “once the launch team is able to determine how much work is left.”No new launch time yet, but expected to be a slip into the two hour window past the 1:04 am ET opening.

06:52 : The takeoff of the giant rocket of the Artemis mission, this morning from Florida, remains scheduled from 7:04 a.m. Paris time, with a possible launch window of two hours. It can therefore take place until 9:04 am. The preparation for takeoff has been disrupted in recent hours by a fuel leak, which was finally repaired.

06:18 : 6 hours, let’s start with a first point on the news:

A missile, “most likely Russian-made” according to Warsaw, hit Polish territory six kilometers from the border with Ukraine yesterday, killing two people. “It is logical that we approach the question with the greatest caution”, reacts this morning the Elysée. “Many countries have the same type of weapons and therefore identifying the type of missile is not necessarily identifying the actor who implemented it”. Russia denies any missile fire at Poland.

Moscow fired “about” 100 missiles over Ukraine yesterday, hitting several critical energy infrastructures in different regions, and causing at least one death. About 10 million Ukrainian homes were without electricity. Here’s what to remember from the day.

Former Republican President Donald Trump announces his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election. The latter made this announcement to thunderous applause from activists, gathered in the reception room of his luxurious Mar-a-Lago residence, in Florida.

After several postponements, the giant rocket of the Artemis mission is finally due to take off for the Moon this morning, from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Follow our live.
