NASA cancels critical Artemis-1 lunar rocket test over safety concerns

NASA canceled a critical refueling test of its Artemis 1 moon rocket on Sunday over safety concerns with ground equipment on the booster’s mobile launch platform.

Technicians planned to refuel the Artemis 1 Mega rocket called Space Launch System (SLS) with 700,000 gallons of super cold propellant on Sunday (April 3) at Pad 39B of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The refueling test was the final phase of a three-day “wet dress rehearsal” designed to test the launch countdown process for NASA’s Artemis 1 mission to the moon later this year.
