Nasa delays launch of SLS Moon rocket following fuel leaks

Nasa has been forced to postpone the launch of its new moon rocket following fuel leaks. The 322-foot Space Launch System rocket was set to lift off Monday morning with three test dummies aboard on its first flight, a mission to propel a capsule into orbit around the moon.The space agency said: “Launch director Charlie Blackwell-Thompson has called a scrub of the attempt of the launch of Artemis 1.“The issue that came up was an engine bleed which couldn’t be remedied but the rocket is currently in a stable configuration.“It was mostly tanked but not completely tanked.“Engineers are now working on a plan to continue gathering data about this particular engine and the bleed that didn’t work out.”They added that the first opportunity for the next launch attempt will be on Friday depending on how the engine bleed develops.
