For the second time in a week, NASA has delayed an attempted launch of the Artemis I moon rocket. The announcement was made nearly three hours prior to the launch window.

Originally, Artemis I was scheduled for a Saturday afternoon launch. However, a liquid hydrogen leak once again postponed the launch.

The first launch attempt was called off on Monday after the launch team discovered several issues.

Reportedly, the leak was a different leak than one that occurred ahead of the scrubbed launch on Monday.

Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville developed the rocket, and Boeing was the prime contractor for the design and production.

Artemis I will eventually take humans back to the Moon. NASA also plans to use the rocket for the first human trip to Mars.
