The launch of Artemis moon rocket will depend on the fuel test on 21 September and easy process. NASA’s prospects on the launch of Artemis 1 moon launch mission in the upcoming week could be made or broken by a critical fuel test of its brand-new mega rocket that is just a few days away.
The Space Launch System’s two hydrogen leaks will be repaired during the fuelling test, which NASA will undertake on September 21st in Florida. Additionally, a new, slower method of fuelling the 32-story booster will be tested. After two failed attempts in recent weeks, NASA will attempt to launch the Artemis 1 SLS rocket to the moon on September 27 if all goes well.
Additionally, NASA added training for the launch team to prevent the unintentional over pressurization of a fuel line, which happened during the attempt on in early September and mechanized all five manual instructions for the fuelling procedure. The approximately 3 million litres of cold liquid hydrogen and cold liquid oxygen, that Artemis 1 needs for launch, will be pumped into the rocket’s core and upper stages by NASA during the fuelling test
