NASA failed to launch a 30-storey rocket because of fuel leak and then surprisingly announced that it will not be attempting again in the current window of opportunity which ends next week. The next launch windows will be available between September 19 to October 4 and then October 17-31. This is because, the current position of the earth and moon is suitable for the travel. Jim Free, an associate administrator for Exploration Systems Development that a new mission is “definitely off the table”. Lakhs of people gathered in beaches in Florida anticipating to witness the grand launch of a blast-off of the Space Launch System but all hopes were washed away after a leak near the base of the rocket was discovered as ultra-cold liquid hydrogen was pumped in. NASA announced that “The Launch Director waived off today’s Artemis I Launch”. Astronaut Victor Glover appreciated such postponement in view of safety.
