According to a senior NASA official, NASA's Artemis I SLS-Orion spacecraft could launch on September 23.

According to a senior NASA official, NASA’s Artemis I SLS-Orion spacecraft could launch on September 23.

According to a senior NASA official, the agency is considering a third attempt to launch its Artemis I Moon rocket on September 23. The Artemis I SLS-Orion spacecraft could be launched by NASA on September 23 or September 27. The new dates were announced just days after NASA halted the rocket’s launch for the second time due to a fuel leak. Another significant test related to planetary defense against near-Earth objects is scheduled for later this month by the agency.

NASA Associate Administrator for Exploraemis I launch attempt could be September 23 and September 27. This will be NASA’s third attempt to launch the spacecraft, following the cancellation of the previous attempt last month.

According to the official, NASA will have an 80-minute launch window on September 23 and a 70-minute launch window on September 27. The launch windows for these dates begin at 6:47am EDT (4:17pm IST) and 11:37am EDT (9:07pm IST), respectively.

It’s also worth noting that NASA has another significant event planned for that week: the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) for planetary defense against near-Earth objects, which is scheduled to hit an asteroid on September 26.
“We will keep @NASA SLS and @NASA Orion at the [launch]pad while we evaluate a seal on one of our fuel feed lines and validate the repair under cryogenic conditions,” Free said on Twitter. “We are also reviewing our loading procedures to ensure resolution.”

According to the report, the launch of Artemis I is still contingent on the space agency receiving a waiver allowing it to avoid retesting batteries for an emergency flight system designed to destroy the rocket if it deviates from its planned path to the Moon. Without the waiver, NASA’s plans to launch the rocket could take several weeks longer.
