NASA’s second attempt to accelerate its lunar megarocket spacecraft Artemis 1 received a new snag on Monday (April 4) due to a missile strike on Earth orbit.
A high -rise above the space shuttle supporting the Artemis 1 rocket Space Launch System at Launch Pad 39B of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center prompted NASA to clear the Artemis 1 display after it launched. firewood on Monday, department officials said.
“Again [to] Due to the vent valve problem, the pilot canceled the test for the day, ”Jeremy Parsons, NASA’s deputy director for Earth Systems, said. wrote in a new Twitter post after washing. “The company is preparing to release LOX (oxygen water) and is starting to discuss how fast the car will turn around for further testing.”
The fixed window frame is located at the 160-foot (49-meter) level of the cable propeller, which serves as a gantry and starting point for the SLS, according to Parsons.
The fuel test Monday was the second of NASA’s attempt to fill the space station of Artemis 1’s 322-foot-high (98 m) SLS rocket with 700,000 gallons (2.6 million liters) of super- chilled water oxygen and water hydrogen propellant in what the department calls a “wet cloth cleaning.” The experiment, which began on April 1, will feature a complete starting point exercise, including a woodworking process.

NASA attempted to raise the moon line Artemis 1 on Sunday (April 3) but stopped before the launch due to a problem with pressing the telemarketer to save measuring hazardous gases from designated areas where technologies will operate. On Monday, the engineers pumped in about 50% of the liquid oxygen needed to test the fuel before it stands down for the sun, Parsons said. wrote on Twitter.
Monday’s attempt was originally intended to set a starting point to end at 2:40 pm EDT (11840 GMT), but delays were delayed due to the rocket’s ice cream supplier. When that problem was solved, NASA estimated a start time set at 6:02 pm EDT (2202 GMT) before the hard disk would begin to scrub.
It’s unclear if NASA will be able to re -do for a third fuel test on Tuesday (April 5) or stand down to replenish its propellant equipment and allow its paddlers to begin operations. time to relax. Meanwhile, a private missionary is waiting on the International Space Station on the wings for his flight time.
SpaceX plans to introduce four private astronauts to the International Space Station on the Ax-1 mission for the Houston company Axiom Space. SpaceX Falcon 9 will release the Mission from Pad 39A, located in place of Artemis 1’s Pad 39B.
SpaceX and Axiom Space originally planned to launch the Ax-1 mission on April 3, but was postponed on April 6 to give NASA time to prepare for the Artemis 1 blue costume. Following the release of NASA’s Artemis 1 on Sunday, SpaceX has resumed release, this time on Friday (April 8).
The Ax-1 mission is due to arrive on April 8 or later as NASA plans to test Artemis 1. In a new area of wrinkle release, SpaceX is preparing to introduce Four new astronauts will arrive at the airport for NASA on April 20 as part of its Crew-4 mission. That flight will launch three NASA spacecraft and one European Space Agency astronaut into the orbiting lab.
But Crew-4 will have to wait for the start of the Ax-1 mission (because both will start from Pad 39A), which is also waiting for NASA to finish the costume training. Costume Artemis 1. As such, Crew-4 is now set to launch on April 20 and has already seen its own set-up times.
