SLS on pad for Artemis 1, Sept 2022 (NASA) NASA announced Saturday it was waving off the next launch attempt for the Artemis 1 mission because of an impending tropical storm. NASA said it would not proceed with the Sept. 27 launch because of the potential of Tropical Storm Ian, forecast to strengthen into a major hurricane, to hit Florida in the coming days. Mission managers, though, held off on a decision to roll back the vehicle from the pad to the VAB as they monitor the track of the storm. If the vehicle remains on the pad, they could attempt a launch Oct. 2, while a rollback would delay the launch at least until late October. Officials said Friday that they they were confident they had resolved liquid hydrogen leak problems, while also securing a waiver for the flight termination system on the SLS from the Eastern Range.
