NASA Artemis-1 Rocket Launch – NASA’s most powerful rocket NASA Artemis-1 was to be launched, however, due to some technical fault, the launch has now been postponed. The rocket was planned to launch the Orion spacecraft without a crew on a mission of approximately 42 days. NASA has confirmed this with its official Twitter handle, that the launch have been postponed due to a fault in engine three.
The root cause of a technical fault is – during a strong thunderstorm at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, the launch pad and 600-foot tower near the rocket were struck by lightning. Therefore, it has come to the fore that some technical fault has occurred in the number three engine of this rocket. The rocket was planned to launch the Orion spacecraft without a crew on a mission of approximately 42 days.
The Artemis-1 mission will use NASA’s new and super heavy rocket. In addition, it is equipped with a Space Launch System. The spacecraft is capable of carrying six astronauts into space for up to 21 days, while an unmanned Artemis-1 mission can last up to 42 days. The rocket will also send a Snoopy soft toy along with the statues, which will act as a zero gravity indicator. Humans in Orion will be replaced with mannequins, and NASA will evaluate spacesuits and radiation.
