NASA calls off critical Artemis 1 moon rocket test over safety concerns

NASA called off a critical fueling test of its Artemis 1 moon rocket on Sunday due to safety concerns with ground equipment on the booster’s mobile launcher platform. 

Technicians planned to fuel the Artemis 1 megarocket, called the Space Launch System (SLS), with 700,000 gallons of super-cold propellant on Sunday (April 3) at Pad 39B of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The fueling test was the final stage of a three-day “wet dress rehearsal” designed to test launch countdown process for NASA’s Artemis 1 mission to the moon later this year.
