Artemis 1 launch attempt set as possible hurricane looms

NASA said Friday it is planning its third launch attempt of Artemis I on Sept.

NASA had to scrub the first launch attempt on Aug.

29 because of a faulty temperature sensor and the second attempt on Sept.3 due to a liquid hydrogen leak. 

 In a press release, NASA said the Artemis team encountered a hydrogen leak during a test run on Wednesday, but the issue was addressed and resolved.

The process of tanking, which includes filling the rocket's core stage with liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen, was also successful.

We had a very successful tanking test all of the tanks, John Blevins, NASA's Space Launch System chief engineer, said during the press conference. 

Over the course of the Artemis missions, NASA plans to eventually send the first female astronaut and the first astronaut of color to the moon.
