NASA postpones launch of its lunar rocket to November

(ORDO NEWS) — The US space agency will wait until at least mid-November before making another attempt to launch its Space Launch System (SLS) rocket as part of the Artemis I expedition to the moon.

The delay is now due to the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.

Let me remind you that initially the launch of the lunar rocket was supposed to take place at the end of August.

But it was postponed several times – first due to engine problems, and then because of a fuel leak, which NASA decided to fix right on the launch pad to save time.

However, a powerful hurricane that hit the coast of Florida confused all NASA cards.

The November Launch Window will be open from November 12 to 27.

If the rocket cannot be sent to the Moon again in November, then the next launch attempt will be possible only in December.
