NASA roll its 1 moon rocket off the launch pad on Friday evening (July 1)

The latest try did not go perfectly smoothly — a hydrogen leak was discovered during fueling operations — but NASA officials deemed it good enough to start preparing Artemis 1 for liftoff.

The mission team is apparently eyeing late August or early September for the liftoff, but an official target date won't be set until SLS and Orion have been inspected fully back at the VAB.

NASA's tiny probe continues spiraling out toward the

The CAPSTONE mission has just one engine burn left in Earth orbit — one that will send it on its way to the moon.

Finally, on Nov. 13, the spacecraft will slip into a near-rectilinear halo orbit (NRHO) around the moon, a highly elliptical path that will take it within 1,000 miles (1,600 km) of the lunar surface on its closest path and as far away as 43,500 miles (70,000 km).

Martian dust devil: NASA's Perseverance witnesses gusty winds in Jezero crater
During its first few hundred days in Jezero crater, NASA's Perseverance rover saw some of the most intense dust activity witnessed by a mission sent to the surface of the Red Planet. Perseverance not only detected hundreds of dusty cyclones known as dust devils, but also captured the first-ever video of gusts whipping up massive Martian dust clouds.

Northrop Grumman's Cygnus cargo ship boosts International Space Station's orbit

A Northrop Grumman Cygnus spacecraft successfully reboosted the International Space Station (ISS) for the first time, raising the orbiting lab to its normal operating altitude of around 250 miles above Earth.

The reboost took place on Saturday (June 25) and marks the first time a Cygnus spacecraft has performed a full reboost procedure.
