Weather Conditions could be Hurdle in Launching Artemis I
The team took longer than expected to start the fueling procedure because of offshore storms with the possibility of lightning.
But the weather is upto 80% favourable for a launch at the start of a window.
Engineers are currently investigating the cause of an 11-minute communication lag between the Orion spacecraft & ground equipment.
According to NASA, engineers are certain that they will solve the problem before the terminal count.
Originally scheduled to launch in late 2021, Artemis 1 will now lift off on August 29, 2022.
The SLS and Orion is the first test flight, designated Artemis I (2022), which will be an uncrewed test.
It is impressive to see the 322-foot-tall (98-foot-tall) stack of the Orion spacecraft and Space Launch System rocket.
Orion will travel 1.3 million miles in 42 days as it heads to the moon, does a loop around it, and then heads back to Earth (2.1 million kilometers).
On October 10, the capsule will splash down in the Pacific Ocean near San Diego.
