The launch window will be open for an hour and nine minutes beginning at 12:07AM ET. If the November 14th launch is canceled, NASA has two backup dates planned, beginning at 1:04AM on November 16th and ending at 1:45AM on November 19th.

The first attempt on August 29th was canceled due to engine problems, and a hydrogen fuel leak a few days later prevented a second attempt.

NASA also had no luck during the next launch window in late September. As Hurricane Ian approached, it rolled the SLS and Orion back to the safety of the Vehicle Assembly Building.

On the plus side, NASA claims that the SLS and Orion will require little preparation before being rolled back out to the launchpad. The thermal protection system’s minor foam and cork damage will be repaired by engineers.

It will also replace or recharge the rocket’s, secondary payloads’, and flight termination system’s batteries. If everything goes as planned, Artemis 1 could be back in the air as soon as November 4th.
