NASA Announces a New Date for the Launch of Artemis 1
NASA has been reserved as a backup launch day
NASA will launch its Artemis 1 rocket on September 27 and has kept October 2 as a provisional date in case of unexpected problems.
The mission is expected to use NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket to launch an Orion capsule around the moon.
The Company’s first and second launch attempts were curtailed after an engine problem and a hydrogen leak. Engineers have already planned to conduct a test on September 21 to ensure the rapid separation will survive in the cryogenic conditions required for launch.
In a blog post, Company informed its reader that it “has continued to follow the eastern range process to review the agency’s request to extend existing test requirements for the flight termination system and provide additional information and data as needed. In parallel, the agency continues preparations for pilot testing of the cooling and potential launch opportunities, should the request be approved.”.
The launch of the rocket on the 27th of this month will have a 70-minute launch window at 11:37 a.m. ET. NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection (DART) mission and mission to the International Space Station with NASA and Space X crews are also expected to take place near the planned launch date.
