NASA will try again to fuel Artemis 1 moon rocket in June as launch slips to August

Artemis 1 will send an uncrewed Orion on a roughly month-long journey around the moon. The mission — the first in NASA's Artemis program of lunar exploration — is designed to ensure that both SLS and Orion are ready for crewed flights.

If all goes well with Artemis 1, Artemis 2 will send astronauts around the moon in 2024 and Artemis 3 will land a crew near the lunar south pole in 2025 or thereabouts.
