NASA Scrubs Artemis 1 Launch Again
Artemis 1 core stage

NASA scrubbed today’s launch attempt for Artemis 1 after 2.5 hours of problems with a leak in a liquid hydrogen valve that provide fuel to the SLS core stage.

Despite 3 different attempts to get the value to seal NASA was unable to make that happen.

No launch is expected in the immediate future and a launch date in October is likely.
