Artemis 1 moon rocket might still fly this week, NASA says

NASA’s Artemis 1 mission might still launch toward the moon this week, despite today’s hiccup.

The highly anticipated Artemis 1 was supposed to lift off this morning (Aug. 29), sending an uncrewed Orion capsule toward the moon atop the agency’s giant new Space Launch System (SLS) rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. But the Artemis 1 team encountered an issue with one of the four RS-25 engines in the SLS’ core stage during the countdown and ended up scrubbing the attempt.
