Artemis 1 moon rocket blew doors off launch tower elevators

NASA’s powerful new moon rocket damaged its launch pad and blew out elevator doors in the launch tower during its inaugural launch last week.

Artemis 1, the first flight of the Artemis program, launched early Wednesday morning (Nov. 16). Nearly 9 million pounds (4 million kg) of thrust propelled the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket to its final frontier, where it successfully sent an unmanned Orion spacecraft to the moon.
