NASA's Artemis I moon launch is expected to draw at least 100,000 people to the Florida coast.

FLORIDA'S BREVARD COUNTY - Vacant hotels. An increasing sense of excitement. There might be hundreds of thousands of guests, staff members, and more.

These are just a few of the variables being taken into account for Artemis I, NASA's Space Launch System rocket's first moon-focused launch scheduled for August 29.

It promises to be the biggest, most potent rocket to launch from Florida's Space Coast in years, and it will bring with it a degree of excitement to match. It stands 322 feet tall.

In total, Space Coast officials anticipate that the rocket's first window, which includes opportunities on August 29, September 2, and September 5, would draw at least 100,000 visitors (Labor Day). 

 T-0 on August 29 is now scheduled for 8:33 a.m. ET from Launch Complex 39B at the Florida-based Kennedy Space Center.

The rocket is a component of NASA's Artemis programme, which seeks to return humans to the moon within the next ten years.
