NASA calls off 3rd attempt to fuel up Artemis 1 moon rocket

The third attempt was not the charm for NASA’s Artemis 1 lunar mission.

Today (April 14), the space agency canceled the last attempt to load fuel for the enormous Artemis 1. space launch system (SLS), a crucial part of the mission’s “wet dress rehearsal” at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC). Artemis 1 Team members detected a leak of liquid hydrogen (LH2), one of SLS’s two propellants, along with liquid oxygen (LOX), during tanking operations. That halted today’s fueling activity, as well as other key wet-dress procedures.
