    Latest new is that Hurricane Nicole has passed, all seems relatively well, and launch is planned for 16 November at 01:04 EST (with a 2 hour window). This is 06:04 UTC, 06:04am UK time.

    Rather...

    Launched delayed yet again. Due to Tropical Storm Nicole (soon likely to become a hurricane).

    Artemis 1 will actually be left out and will have to weather the storm. Too late to return it to the...

    I let them know about the error and they've corrected it now.

    I took the time from the EarthSky blog at https://earthsky.org/space/artemis1-our-return-to-moon/ which is usually quite reliable. I didn't think to check the launch time at NASA. The EarthSky blog...

    The latest news is that Artemis 1 is definitely (hopefully) due to launch on 14 November at 05:07 UTC.

    It will begin rollout from the VAB to LC-39B tomorrow, 4th November.

    For confirmation, the...

    Much as I want this to succeed, does anyone know of any p2p markets or online bookies taking bets on whether or not it will RUD or otherwise fail at any point on its journey? I had a look at Betfair...

    That's rather nice. I nice memento of working on a project.

    'Just' two attempts for Artemis 1. Next launch attempt will be the third try.

    To be honest, about the same as before today I would have thought. Stuff like this is why there are tests and, so far, it's really only been a minor issue.



    Whilst one would certainly have...

    Sad.

    Look like an official scrub may be announced soon according to comments by NASASpaceflight channel. They can't fix the LH leak in time.

    Yup. Fingers crossed for today.

    There is a severe risk that political issues could start to come into play if this doesn't go well. The pressure on everyone involved must be astronomical (pun not...

    Seems that LOX is full, LH still troubleshooting.

    (As per my earlier comment, there's still time to sort out the leak and fill the LH tank but I can't help but feel that this is building up to a...

    Also the Everyday Astronaut feed seems to have gone live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rv4FXgN8A1g&ab_channel=EverydayAstronaut

    Watch the NASASpaceflight live feed on Youtube. They are cycling through NASA's engineering cams (very interesting) as well as a fuelling status screen. The fuelling status screen comes up every few...

    Looking at the engineering cam and no idea if it's important or not but there is what appears to be a crack/leak in the foam near one of the quick release connections. Let's hope it's condensation,...

    Worryingly, the LH fill number doesn't seem to be increasing. It's stuck at 8%.

    Ah, just saw this on the blog. :-(





    My gut feeling is that today is going to end in a scrub.

    That was "8:09 am" wasn't it. Either way, it's good news.


    Watching venting of LOX on the NASASpaceflight feed at the moment. I always think that venting like this is very Thunderbirds-ish. ;-)

    I understand that they are still working on the liquid hydrogen leak. Let's hope they get it sorted out in time to finish filling to hit the two hour launch window.

    I took 18:33 UTC from the official NASA broadcast description at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMLD0Lp0JBg&ab_channel=NASA.

    A more careful reading shows that it currently reads: "Liftoff is from...
