NASA fights fuel leak to launch Artemis 1 moon rocket

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – NASA engineers are working to stop a fuel leak on its massive new moon rocket ahead of a critical test flight on Saturday (Sept. 3).

NASA began refueling the Artemis 1 moon rocket, NASA’s first Space Launch System (SLS), early Saturday to launch an unmanned Orion spacecraft to the moon from Pad 39B here at Kennedy Space Center at 2:17 p.m. EDT (1817 GMT). But an ongoing leak of liquid hydrogen fuel detected has delayed launch preparations.
