The Artemis 1 moon mission's next launch attempt has been changed.

The launch window for Artemis 1 will last 69 minutes. During the month of November, NASA will attempt to send the crew capsule to the moon.

The uncrewed mission will be the first test flight of NASA's new 322-foot-tall (98 meters) Space Launch System megarocket.

Two attempts to launch Artemis 1 were scrubbed due to a rocket engine temperature issue and a fuel line leak.

There was a chance of a late September launch after Hurricane Ian forced the Artemis 1 stack to be rolled back into the Vehicle Assembly Building. In October, the launch opportunity was ruled out due to the storm.

According to NASA, the good news is that minimal work is required to prepare the rocket and spacecraft to roll out once again to the Launch Pad 39B.

Two-hour backup launch windows have been requested by NASA. The time is 1:45 a.m.

A launch on November 14 would result in a mission duration of about two weeks, with a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean on December 9 ending everything.
