NASA is streaming the SLS - Artemis 1 launch live.
NASA Live
Launch is due 08:33 local time (12:33 GMT; 13:33 BST)
 
I checked in when there was more than four hours to go.

When I was a kid we used to watch the Apollo launches, and when I was a daft young eejit we used to watch the Shuttle launches.
Now I watch SpaceX and the like. But today is special.

April 12th 1981 , The Columbia lifting off from the pad. Seeing us get back into space amazing.
 
Getting back into space , going back to the Moon , Mars and beyond is something that we ultimately need to do.
 
Today is special. (at T-40 minutes and holding) I cannot really fathom how incredibly moved I am by this. It feels like we should have been here 40+ years ago.

For some reason, this bings to mind Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's Into Infinity .:)
 
And we wait a bit longer...
