The launch of the Artemis 1 mission rocket has been postponed again

The launch will not take place on Tuesday due to the forecasted weather conditions.

The planned launch of NASA’s new ground-breaking rocket to the Moon will not take place on Tuesday.

In particular, the long-awaited Artemis 1 mission will not start its journey into space – not even this Tuesday, as it was announced – due to the bad weather conditions predicted by meteorologists.

Under the threat of Tropical Storm Ian, currently south of Jamaica, NASA will prepare the rocket and move it to safety in the assembly building.

Ian is expected to strengthen into a hurricane in the coming days and head through the Gulf of Mexico toward Florida, where the Kennedy Space Center is located.

It is recalled that previous attempts to launch the Artemis 1 mission had been postponed, as a hydrogen leak had been observed while filling the tanks of the SLS rocket with a capacity of 3.7 million liters of fuel.

SLS, the most powerful rocket ever built at 98 meters tall, carries the Orion capsule, carrying three dummies as passengers, on a flight that will orbit the Moon before returning to crash into the Pacific about 40 days later.

The same flight is scheduled to be repeated with a crew in 2024, before the first lunar landing mission to follow in 2025 at the earliest and will be carried out in partnership with Elon Musk’s SpaceX.
