NASA planed to launch Artemis I Saturday, September 3rd at 2:17 P.M.  The launch window from the Kennedy Space Center’s Pad 39B in Merritt Island,Florida was 2 hours. Regrettably, the launch is now delayed indefinitely.

Whenever it launches  “She”  will be on Artemis for a virtual ride. Like any trip that spans 40 days the moonlight feels right with a customized playlist. So here’s one to enjoy… and add to,  if you’re feeling celestial.
