20:45 : What are the differences between Apollo and Artemis (whose launch was postponed this afternoon)? “The passenger compartment and the controls are of the latest generation and the most modern materials. But if you look closely at the heat shield, it’s just a modernized version of the one used for Apollo at the time.“, emphasizes for example Kathy Schubert, deputy director of flight systems at NASA’s Glenn Center in this France 2 report.

19:47 : We are still waiting for the NASA press conference, scheduled for the afternoon, American time, to find out if the Artemis rocket has a chance to take off again early next week. Otherwise, the release will be completely moved to October.

18:29 : 11 space shuttles had to leave the launch pad to return to the hangar, and two of them did it twice in a row… Artemis, for a first mission, is no exception

18:29 : Note that our national Thomas Pesquet relativizes this second postponement of the launch of Artemis in a tweet.

18:28 : @Citizen The last Saturn launchers, at the end of the program in the 1970s, were displayed in various museums and are no longer operational. The last rocket of this program that worked dates from 1975, it is an understatement to say that the technology has evolved a bit since then. Furthermore, the Artemis mission is different, both in terms of its goals and the volume of spacecraft sent into space.

18:26 : Do you know why the Saturn launcher that has proven itself several times is not reused? Thank you for your knowledge on this subject.

18:11 : Artemissed, rather!

18:11 : Atos, Portos, Aramis, D’Artagnan and ARTEMIS, the 5th musketeer who misses his sword blows 😜

17:37 : When will the new release of Artemis take place? NASA teams will have to analyze all the data before deciding on a new date. Therefore, we have no official communication about a new date at the moment.

17:22 : If you want to know more about the pollution caused by rocket launches in general, I recommend this BBC article which explains that, broadly speaking, the fuel burned by rockets launched from Earth represents 1% of the total consumed by aviation on planet Earth.

17:21 : The #Artemis I mission to the Moon has been postponed. Teams tried to fix a problem related to a leak in the hardware that transfers fuel to the rocket, but were unsuccessful. Join NASA leaders later today for a press conference. Check for updates: https://t.co/6LVDrA1toy

17:20 : It’s official ! The launch of the Artemis rocket is postponed again, this time due to a fuel leak, NASA announces.

17:19 : It’s official right now, no release today #Artemis

17:19 : Well right now it looks more like “enough rocket” 😄

17:18 : @astronomical costs Great question, but I don’t have the answer…

17:18 : What is the energy and carbon footprint of this entire operation?

17:14 : @Gagarin I’m no expert on space conquest but remember that new rocket launches sometimes get off to a rocky start. I am thinking of the episode of the France Inter program “Sensitive Matters” about the beginnings of the Ariane program that I advise you to listen to. More recently, SpaceX has also experienced setbacks, and it is difficult to compare the differences of the rockets, knowing that Artemis must go much further.

17:09 : Disavowal for NASA, right? The reliability of the “old” Vostok-Soyuz launchers still seems relevant, by comparison.

17:07 : NASA engineers have just recommended postponing the launch.

17:06 : During tanking for the #Artemis I mission, a leak developed on the supply side of the 8-inch quick disconnect while attempting to transfer fuel to the rocket. Attempts to fix it so far have been unsuccessful. Wait for updates. https://t.co/6LVDrA1toy

17:06 : Unfortunately it appears that the leak is not fixed and precaution dictates postponing the release a second time.

17:04 : #Sagebrush Unfortunately, it will still be a #nogo for today’s release.

15:44 : While a leak was detected early this morning, and after two attempts to fix it, NASA says it’s going to “plan C” to fix the problem (maybe the sensor) and still launch on time, at 8: 17 pm French time @F2Washington

15:25 : Les derniers préparatifs de la nouvelle méga-fusée de la Nasa pour la Luna ont pris du retard à cause d’une fuete de carburant, detect quelques heures du décollage de cette mission test que doit launch the Artemis program de retour des Américains sur Moon.

14:18 : Liftoff of NASA’s Mega Rocket is Near! Launch director Charlie Blackwell-Thompson gave the go-ahead to start filling the rocket’s tanks with its cryogenic fuel (a total of about three million liters of ultracold liquid hydrogen and oxygen).

13:48 : Countdown is on! The countdown begins for the liftoff of Artemis! Take a look: for you, we will be in the front row from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida where we will make you experience this historic mission… if all goes well!

13:22 : The account that was locked at -6:40:00 has just been resumed! #Artemis #artemis1 #artemislaumch #nasa for a launch scheduled from 20:17 Paris time 🚀

14:19 : Good morning @JeanBorey. Takeoff is scheduled for 2:17 p.m. local time (8:17 p.m. in France), and remains possible for the next two hours if necessary. In case of a new impediment today, the liftoff could possibly be rescheduled for Monday or Tuesday.
