BBC News published this video item, entitled “Nasa aborts second launch attempt of Artemis Moon rocket – BBC News” – below is their description.
US space agency Nasa has aborted its launch of the Artemis Moon rocket for a second time in a week after controllers discovered a leak in its hydrogen tank.
Engineers couldn’t repair the issue in time to allow the launch to go ahead this weekend and will now look to Monday next week for a possible launch.
The first launch was postponed after controllers struggled to get an engine on the 100m-tall vehicle cooled down to its correct operating temperature.
The maiden flight, part of Nasa’s Artemis programme, is just a demonstration with no one on board. But ever more complex missions are planned for the future that will see people live on the lunar surface for weeks at a time.BBC News YouTube Channel
