Artemis 1 launch scrubbed

Date:

NASA’s Artemis 1 launch was scrubbed Monday. Fuel leaks have forced NASA to scrub the launch of its new moon rocket on a crewless test flight. Now NASA engineers must determine how much repair the engine needs. Is it something that can be done on the trail, or does it have to go back to the VAB? NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said this about the launch: “We don’t launch until it’s right. And in fact they have a problem with the gases going on the engine, bleeding on one engine. You can’t go, there are certain guidelines ,” said Nelson. The next launch attempt will be Friday at the earliest. The Friday launch window opens at 12:48 PM and will remain open until 2:48 PM. The launch would take place early Monday morning and take off from launch pad 39-B. According to NASA, the engineering team was troubleshooting a blood flow for Engine 3 on the core stage and the countdown was on. The launch window opened at 8:33 a.m. and was said to be open until 10:33 a.m. The launch was scrubbed a few minutes after the window was opened due to a technical problem.

NASA’s Artemis 1 launch was scrubbed Monday.

Fuel leaks have forced NASA to scrub the launch of its new moon rocket on a crewless test flight.

Now NASA engineers must determine how much repair the engine needs. Is it something that can go on the path, or does it have to go back to the VAB?

NASA administrator Bill Nelson said this about the launch:

“We’re not launching until it’s right. And basically they have a problem with the gases going on the engine, venting on one engine. You can’t go, there are certain guidelines,” Nelson said.

The next launch attempt will be Friday at the earliest. The Friday launch window opens at 12:48pm and stays open until 2:48pm

The launch would take place early Monday morning and take off from launch pad 39-B.

According to NASA, the engineering team was troubleshooting a blood flow for Engine 3 in the core phase and the countdown was on.

The launch window opened at 8:33 a.m. and should be open until 10:33 a.m. The launch was scrubbed a few minutes after the window was opened due to a technical problem.

Anywhere between 100,000 and 500,000 people are expected to descend on the Space Coast to witness Monday’s launch.

Brevard County officials prepared for heavy traffic on launch day and even advised parents to plan ahead to drive their kids to school.

“Be patient. Watch out for pedestrians as there will be a lot of people crossing the street,” said Don Walker of Brevard County Emergency Management Response.

“We’ve heard as many as 500,000 from the Cape. So you’re talking about nearly doubling the size of Brevard County in just one Monday morning,” Walker said.

The rocket will launch without astronauts, orbit the moon before returning to Earth.

Instead of astronauts, a mannequin named Commander Moonikin Campos will pilot the Orion spacecraft, with two mannequin torsos named Helga and Zohar along for the ride.

The Artemis program aims to land the first woman and the first person of color on the moon and eventually take astronauts to Mars.

The inaugural mission will test the new Space Launch System rocket, Orion spacecraft and multiple components designed to make distant space travel safer for humans.

The mission will keep things running smoothly for the Orion spacecraft for Artemis 2, which is expected in 2024.

The weather conditions look favorable for the launch.
