The Moon mission by NASA was postponed.

The earliest launch date for NASA's uncrewed Artemis 1 mission to the Moon is September 27.

The date depends on successfully fueling the Space Launch System rocket and avoiding retesting emergency flight system batteries.

If not, the rocket must be wheeled back to its factory, delaying the launch by weeks.

The Orion capsule would splashdown on November 5 after a 70-minute launch window on September 27. 2. Oct.

Artemis 1 will test the SLS and unmanned Orion for Moon missions. The spacecraft will travel 60 miles during its closest approach to the Moon.

One of the main goals of the capsule's re-entry into the atmosphere is to test its 16-foot-diameter thermal shield. The next mission, Artemis 2, will not land on the Moon.
