tried three times
Launch director Charlie Blackwell Thompson gave information about this, but after that the agency refused to say anything. The launch was to take place at 2:17 pm local time. NASA has not yet told when this mission will be launched now. Nor is it fixed for Monday or Tuesday like last time.
Mission manager Michael Thompson said the fuel leakage was high and there were no problems with it till Monday. The team tried thrice to solve this problem but with no success. Under this mission of NASA, the 5.8 lakh pound vehicle will achieve many goals.
What is the objective of the mission
If NASA’s first two Artemis missions are successful, then the agency aims to re-land space scientists on the moon. NASA plans to send female astronauts to the moon by 2025. Sarafin said the mission’s engineers had detected a hydrogen leak and that it had happened three times when it was not considered safe. This increased the risk of fire.
NASA had earlier planned to launch Artemis on August 29. But it could not be launched due to four RS-25 engines. One engine got too hot and it was cancelled. The launch was postponed due to hydrogen luck and inclement weather in Florida. After this, on August 31, NASA announced that it would be launched on September 3.

Under Artemis 1, NASA wants to land its scientists on the lunar surface by the year 2025. This mission was also a test of NASA’s new space launch system and Orion capsule. Under this mission, apart from NASA radiation, there is also a selfie with the capsule with the background of the moon. The goal of the Artemis program is to establish the lunar surface on Earth satellite for a long time. Under which is the most important goal, for the first time since 1972, after landing humans on the moon, the moment of historic moon walk is to be given to the world. On October 22, 2021, NASA announced this for the first time.
