Good news for the Artemis I mission, NASA's latest mission. Artemis I will take off from Kennedy Space Center on March 12, 2022, and the mission is expected to last 26 days, making it a Lunar Orbital Test Flight But until launch, Artemis I still has tests to do. The last test performed by NASA is the Countdown Test, which was successfully completed yesterday, January 24, 2022. 

NASA's test was not as difficult as the previous ones, and the next checks and tests will not be as difficult. Even though the tests will not be as difficult, NASA is "excited" about the final verification test. But we hope that everything will go well and there will be no delays in the mission. There are only a few checks or tests to be done on the SLS rocket and for the Orion spacecraft before takeoff, one of which is wet rehearsal test to be done in mid-February. 

NASA stated the following: "The test demonstrated the ground launch software and the ground launch sequencer, which checks the health and condition of the rocket on the pad. The simulated launch countdown tested the responses from the Space Launch System rocket and the Orion spacecraft. , making sure the sequencer is working properly. " 

In a statement, NASA also said that the rocket still has few tests to do and most are just checks and final tests of the rocket. Exploration Ground Systems engineers team continues to conduct final checks of the Moon rocket according to NASA. Also, the last rehearsal, ie the final test, will take place after the engineers will fully load the SLS with propulsion, so that the test will be as realistic as possible with the actual launch in March.
