NASA ready for second attempt at Artemis lunar launch

Ground teams at Kennedy Space Center prepared on Saturday for a second try at launching NASA’s towering, next-generation moon rocket on its debut flight, hoping to have remedied engineering problems that foiled the initial countdown five days earlier. The 32-story tall Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and its Orion capsule were due for blastoff from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 2:17 p.m. EDT (1817 GMT), kicking off NASA’s ambitious moon-to-Mars program Artemis program 50 years after the last Apollo lunar mission. The previous launch bid on Monday ended with technical problems forcing a halt to the countdown and postponement of the uncrewed flight.
