american space agency NASA The Ambitious New Moon MissionArtemis-1‘ From Saturday, the dangerous leakage started again when it was being refueled for the final preparations for its launch. In its second attempt this week, the test team began filling one million gallons of fuel into NASA’s most powerful 322-foot-tall rocket, but it began to leak. Earlier on Monday, the problem arose due to a bad engine sensor and fuel leak.
NASA’s Launch Control reported that as soon as sunrise occurred, the overpressure alarm sounded and the refueling operation was briefly halted, but with no damage, and attempted again. However, a few minutes later, hydrogen fuel began to leak from the engine area at the bottom of the rocket. After this NASA stopped the operation and the NASA engineer tried to close a hole near the seal.
Let us tell you that NASA’s Artemis-1 mission is moving towards an important step in bringing humans back after nearly half a century. This is going to be an important journey for NASA’s Space Launch System and Orion crew capsule. This spacecraft will go to the Moon, will drop some small satellites into orbit and will put itself in orbit. NASA’s objective is to receive training in spacecraft operations and to investigate the conditions experienced by astronauts around the Moon.
Artemis-1 is a new type of rocket
It is a new type of rocket system as its main engines are a combination of both liquid oxygen and hydrogen systems, as well as two solid rocket boosters inspired by the spacecraft. It is actually a hybrid form of a spacecraft (Space Shuttle) and Apollo’s Saturn V rocket. This launch is very important because the actual work of the Orion crew capsule will be seen. This launch will take about a month in the space environment of the Moon.
Mission is very important in terms of settling humans on the moon
This spacecraft is 322 feet or 98 meters long, which is the most powerful rocket ever built by NASA and more powerful than the Saturn-5, which took the astronauts of the Apollo program to the Moon. According to American mythology, this lunar rocket is named after Artemis, the twin sister of Apollo. With this mission, scientists want to know whether the conditions around the moon are right for astronauts. NASA is sending the Orion spaceship through this Space Launch System to come back after circling around the moon, so that the next part of the Artemis mission can be sent to land humans on the lunar surface in the year 2025.
