Let us tell you that on Monday, NASA had postponed the test flight of Chandrayaan at the last moment before its Artemis mission. The launch was postponed due to last minute temperature issues in one of its four RS-25 engines. Artemis 1 mission will now be launched a few days later. This non-manned flight is part of an ambitious program to first go to the Moon and then this program will be run on Mars.

Artemis Space Program at 8:33 a.m. (1233 GMT) 50 years after the astronauts stepped on the moon during the Apollo 17 mission, a 322-foot Space Launch System rocket without a crew was to be launched from Kennedy Space St., Florida . The Artemis 1 flight was intended to test the SLS and the Orion capsule to be installed on top of the rocket.

The night operation to inflate more than three million liters of ultra-cold liquid hydrogen and oxygen into the rocket was delayed due to a lightning strike. Another problem came to the fore at around three o’clock in the night, due to the possibility of leakage during hydrogen filling, this work had to be stopped.
