Space.com article on October 22nd, 2021: forecasted launch date... February 12th 2022 (estimated to be 113 days between news/forecast).
https://www.space.com/nasa-sls-megarocket-artemis-1-moon-launch-february-2022


Estimated forecast in news (113 days) x Euler's number (e = 2.718281828459045235360287471352662497757247093699959574966967627724076630353547594571382178525166427427466 ...) = 307 days

Predicted date of launch: 
Thursday, August 25, 2022 which is Burger Day, National Banana Split Day as well as Kiss-and-Make-Up Day.  Also occurs during Cat 5 Hurricane Ian.

The moon phase will be near a new moon.  So, a very challenging flight around the moon given the orbital position relative to the Earth's magnetic field/bow shock.

For more digits of Euler's number (e), please visit the NASA Goddard website link at:

Currently sticking with my original forecast from last November 2021.  Currently +/- 12 hours, but still ~August 25th, 2022 12:00 ZULU time during a Cat V hurricane.  Going to squeak this one in there.
How do you know when a hurricane is going to come?

The same way you know when it's going to launch.
Cheeseburgers on Mars!

"NASA's senior exploration official, Jim Free, said the agency is working toward a launch window of August 23 to September 6."

Said official is also quoted with stating that "progress (made) last week" is "incredible", thus one might take his prediction "cum grano salis" ...  ;)
