NASA ‘s attempts to launch Artemis I last week failed for several reasons. Now the space agency is looking to attempt another Artemis launch in late September. If that fails, they’ll have to push the rocket’s mission timeline further back to October .

NASA has delayed the launch attempt of the Artemis I and Orion capsule due to a leak of hydrogen fuel that has been plaguing the rocket for some time. NASA also has to run some tests to be ready for takeoff again. Once these tests are complete, NASA hopes to launch on September 23 or 27 .

Artemis I is of great importance in the Artemis Mission

These are of course possible dates for the next Artemis launch attempt , and this is always subject to change. There are many factors to consider, especially when launching a rocket as important as Artemis I into space. This rocket will carry the first capsule designed for long-term human transport since the 1970s.

If the mission is successful,  a new era of space exploration will begin where we can finally see NASA sending humans to Mars, but for all of this to happen, we need to make one of the Artemis I tests a success. Mike Bolger, director of NASA’s Exploration Ground Systems Program, says the team is making good progress in resolving all the issues.

All we can do now is wait and see. After NASA sets a date  , we will finally be able to see the launch of Artemis .
