Space travel: Nasa cancels the start of the "Artemis" moon mission again

The US space agency Nasa has also canceled the second attempt to launch an unmanned moon mission. The launch director of "Artemis I", Charlie Blackwell-Thompson, canceled the attempt a few hours before the scheduled launch on Saturday, according to a spokesman.

NASA had previously confirmed a leak in a fuel hose. Several attempts to solve this problem had failed. The start was planned in a two-hour time window from 8:17 p.m. German time.

A first attempt to start "Artemis I" was also aborted last Monday due to a tank leak. In addition, one engine could not be cooled down to the required temperature. In addition to Saturday, NASA also named Monday, September 5th, as other possible launch dates. The unmanned test flight of the "Artemis" mission, which will last around 40 days, is intended to herald the return to manned flights to the moon.
