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

    The third try was not the charm for NASA’s Artemis 1 moon mission.

    Today (April 14), the space agency called off the latest attempt to fuel up Artemis 1’s huge Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, a crucial part of the mission’s “wet dress rehearsal” at Kennedy Space Center in Florida (KSC). Artemis 1 team members detected a leak of liquid hydrogen (LH2) — one of SLS’ two propellants, along with liquid oxygen (LOX) — during tanking operations. That brought a halt to today’s fueling activity, as well as other key wet dress procedures.
