Fuel leak ruins NASA’s 2nd shot at launching moon rocket

Another hazardous fuel leak was caused by NASA's new moon rocket on Saturday.

Launch controllers were compelled to abandon their second attempt to place the crew capsule in lunar orbit as a result.

The first attempt in the week was also attended by escaping hydrogen.

It could be necessary to take the rocket from the launch pad and bring it back to its hangar in order to fix the significant fuel leak.

Launch director Charlie Blackwell-Thompson and his team attempt, like they did previously, to stop the leak on Saturday.

In fact, they tried that twice and also ran helium through the line. However, the leak continued.

Before astronauts board the subsequent voyage, NASA aims to complete a full orbit of the moon in the crew capsule atop the rocket.
