NASA aborts its second attempt to launch Artemis 1 to the moon

For the second time in a row, Artemis will not be able to fly this week due to a medical condition. Having unsuccessfully attempted to stop a leak of liquid hydrogen fuel from the rocket, NASA was forced to scrap a second launch of the rocket scheduled for late Saturday morning due to the leak.
