‘Safety Is Always First’: NASA Engineers To Meet About Future Of Artemis Moon Mission


NASA cancelled the launch of its Artemis I mission on Monday, but researchers at the organization were reviewing data from the attempt in the hopes of sending the spacecraft in the coming days, the first step in a series of launches that could send astronauts toward the moon for the first time in fifty years.
Engineers’ inability to bring one of the rocket’s four engines to the temperature required to activate it when the rocket lifted off was the biggest problem on Monday. According to NASA, the Artemis team attempted to address the issue as soon as possible before the scheduled launch time but was unable to do so before a two-hour launch window closed.
Engineers were analyzing the data from the effort, according to the space agency, and the mission management team would meet on Tuesday to decide how to proceed. On backup days, the following launch can occur on Friday right before 1 p.m. local time, or Monday, depending on the weather, can possibly be delayed by more than a month.
Thousands of people drove to Florida’s Kennedy Space Center to witness rockets, including Vice President Kamala Harris, and were disappointed by the choice. But despite years of delays that have plagued the $40 billion project, NASA said that it wouldn’t launch the rocket until it was safe to do so.
