Artemis I launch scrubbed after engine issue

One of the biggest trending stories of the day is the Artemis launch.
Artemis is NASA’s most powerful rocket ever built and it was sent to launch today. But that won’t happen because the most powerful rocket ever built has issues. The launch was postponed today due to engine concerns.
Engineers said the problem came from a liquid hydrogen line that was not chilled enough inside one of the rocket’s four core-stage engines, which needs to occur before they can be ignited.

This launch is a historic and important one for NASA. The Artemis program aims to get humans back to the moon which has not happened since 1972.
The next projected launch date is now September 2nd. if all goes well.
It seems like the most powerful rocket ever built is becoming even more expensive…
