NASA’s Artemis 1 moon rocket passes crucial refueling test

NASA’s Artemis 1 moon rocket passed a critical refueling test on Wednesday, September 21, which could keep it on track for a scheduled liftoff on September 27.

Artemis 1 will send an unmanned Orion capsule into lunar orbit using a giant Space Launch System (SLS) rocket. NASA attempted to launch the mission on September 3 but was thwarted by a liquid hydrogen propellant leak to a “quick disconnect” on the SLS core stage, an interface connecting the rocket to a fuel line from its mobile launch tower.
