NASA To Fuel Artemis 1 Moon Rocket In June As Launch Slips To August

NASA will take its fourth crack at fueling up its Artemis 1 moon rocket in June that, if all goes according to plan, could set the stage for its first launch in August

Rolled Out To Pad 39B At NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida in mid-March for its "wet dress rehearsal," a crucial series of tests that includes fueling up the SLS.

The Wet Dress Began On April 1 and was supposed to wrap up two days later. But the Artemis 1 team encountered several problems

Including A Stuck Valve On The Mobile launch tower and a hydrogen leak in one of the "umbilical" lines, which delayed and ultimately halted the wet dress after three fueling attempts.

If All Goes Well With Artemis 1 Artemis 2 will send astronauts around the moon in 2024 and Artemis 3 will land a crew near the lunar south pole
