NASA’s Artemis mission delayed again


NASAwhich has been working on for about 10 years and aims to carry people to the Moon. Artemis The mission was once again postponed. Orion Space It has been reported that the launch of the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, which is expected to take off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA to carry the vehicle to the lunar orbit, was postponed to September 27 at the earliest. It was noted that NASA reviewed October 2 as an alternative launch date in the face of a possible technical glitch.


The launch of the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, which will carry the American National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Orion Spacecraft to lunar orbit, was postponed to a later date last month due to suspected technical failure. While it was publicized that the new launch date could be September 23, it was announced that an undetermined temperature problem was detected in one of the engines. Orion Spacecraft, which is planned to be sent to the Moon by the 98-meter-long and 3.99-tonne thrust SLS rocket within the framework of the Artemis I mission, was expected to collect scientific data about the planned manned flights in the future during its 42-day mission.



If Artemis I, the first mission of the Artemis Lunar Program, whose ultimate goal is to return humans to the lunar surface by 2025, succeeds, a true crewed lunar flight trial with the Artemis II mission is expected in 2024. In 2025, within the framework of the Artemis III mission, it is aimed to land a human on the Moon for the first time since the 1970s.
