Disappointment today after the Artemis 1 launch was scrubbed due to engine issues.

The uncrewed test flight was supposed to return to the moon for the first time in almost 50 years.

The NASA Orion Spacecraft and Space Launch System rocket is a part of the Artemis One mission to the Moon.

It will mark the beginning of a new era of lunar exploration.

A successful launch will be the lead-up to a second mission(Artemis 2), where a Canadian Space Agency astronaut will be a part of the first crewed mission to the moon since Apollo 17 in 1972.

The next window to launch isn’t until September 2nd, but there is some uncertainty as to whether or not they will have the issue fixed by then.
