Leaky engine thwarts NASA’s efforts to return to the Moon

Cape Canaveral, Florida.

A fuel leak and then an engine problem during final liftoff preparations led NASA to cancel Monday the launch of its mighty rocket to the new moon on its debut flight with three test dummies on board.

The next launch attempt won’t take place until Friday at the earliest and could be put on hold until next month.

The flight, when it happens, will be the first launch in NASA’s Artemis project, a quest to return astronauts to the moon since the Apollo program ended 50 years ago.
