Had things gone according to plan, today would have seen the launch of Artemis I, the first rocket in a series of missions intended to return humans to the Moon. Sadly, Artemis did not launch. This is not a bad thing. There is a reason why we say something is not difficult via the pithy metaphor, “Hey, this ain’t rocket science.”
So, no launch…but there is still something amazing and beautiful about a rocket being readied for its flight.
Best of luck next time, Artemis!
