NASA is targeting September 23 for the next Artemis 1 launch attempt, but there’s still a long way to go

NASA’s next attempt to launch its new mega-rocket on a test flight to the Moon could lift off by September 23, but only if the agency fixes a leak and receives a critical waiver from US Space. Strength.

Jim Free, NASA Associate Administrator for Exploration Systems Development, said today (September 8) that the launch of NASA’s Artemis 1 lunar mission – the launch of its giant rocket Space Launch System (SLS ) – could take off on September 23 or 27. These launch dates are dependent on a number of requirements, including NASA obtaining a waiver to extend the time required to check the batteries of the Flight Termination System (FTS) of the SLS, which is designed to destroy the rocket if it veers off course during launch.
