How to watch NASA’s Artemis 1 launch to the moon

After months of tests, troubleshooting and repairs, engineers began fueling the Artemis 1 Space Launch System moon rocket for blastoff Monday on a long-overdue test flight to send an uncrewed Orion capsule on a 42-day voyage around the moon.Rain showers with lightning moved within five nautical miles of launch pad 39B just after midnight, forcing Launch Director Charlie Blackwell-Thompson to delay the start of propellant loading by 55 minutes. But the six-hour procedure finally got underway at 1:13 a.m. EDT.Then, a hydrogen leak was discovered as the fueling was taking place.Another issue as the countdown ticked into its final hours was troubleshooting to find the cause of a momentary communications glitch in one of the channels relaying commands and telemetry to and from the Orion spacecr...
