NASA has given the go-ahead to launch its new SLS Megarocket next week.
- The launch will take place Monday, August 29th, with backup dates set for Sept. 2nd and Sept. 5th.
- The rocket will spend 42 days in space, delivering the Orion capsule and making a 'close flyby' of the Moon before returning to Earth.
- The launch is a key step for NASA's Artemis project, which hopes to return humans to the surface of the moon by the year 2025.
- Do you think humans will ever set up a permanent colony on the Moon?
