NASA's Artemis I: Technical issues scuttle Saturday's second launch attempt for moon mission

Artemis launcg scrubbed again

Saturday brought another launch scratch for the Artemis I mission.

Technical issues caused launch delays on Saturday and eventually robbed spectators in Cape Canaveral, Florida, and around the country of something Americans haven't seen in more than 50 years: a launch to kick off a NASA program to send humans to the moon. A similar situation unfolded during the first launch attempt on Monday, Aug. 29.

The space agency's attempt for a rescheduled launch of the crewless Orion capsule on Saturday afternoon was first halted about 9 a.m. ET as engineers began attempting to counteract a hydrogen fuel leak in the engine section at the rocket's bottom.

When the launch team could not successfully stop the leak, NASA officials scrubbed the Saturday liftoff at about 11:20 a.m. EDT.
