pernando adikate / Sep 03, 2022
NASA will move forward with a second launch attempt of Artemis I on Saturday, with the megarocket's two-hour launch window set to open at 2:17 p.m. Eastern Time.

On Monday, the launch was scrubbed after one of the Space Launch System's (SLS) four RS-25 engines on the bottom of its core stage failed to reach the proper temperature range for liftoff.

During the first launch attempt, readings showed SLS' engine 3 appeared to be as much as 40 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the desired minus 420 degrees Fahrenheit, according to SLS program manager John Honeycutt. The three other engines came up just a little short.
