NASA’s Artemis 1 moon rocket passes crucial fueling test

NASA’s Artemis 1 moon rocket passed a critical fueling test Wednesday (Sept. 21), potentially keeping it on track for a planned Sept. 27 liftoff.

Artemis 1 will send an uncrewed Orion capsule to lunar orbit using a giant space Launch System (SLS) rocket. NASA tried to launch the mission on Sept. 3 but was thwarted by a leak of liquid hydrogen propellant at a “quick disconnect” on the SLS core stage, an interface linking the rocket with a fuel line from its mobile launch tower.
