With a storm forecast, NASA's Moon Rocket Launch faces a new threat.

Artemis 1 mission was scheduled for Tuesday launch . The launch window is now set to be pushed back to October 17 .

Washington, D.C. — A historic unmanned mission to the Moon is facing fresh challenges.The Artemis 1 mission, which was scheduled for Tuesday, is now threatened by a storm in the Caribbean, which has not been named.The storm, which has not yet been named, is based south of the Dominican Republic and could pass north to Florida, where it will land at the Kennedy Space Center, where it will launch the rocket.But we also needed to be paying attention and thinking about a plan B.That would include wheeling the enormous Space Launch System rocket back to the Vehicle Assembly Building, or VAB, in a few days, Bolger said, adding that we need to take a few days to shift from our current tanking test or launch setup to return to the VAB's safety.The current launch window, which runs until October 4, will be pushed back to October 17, with only one possibility of take-off per day, except from October 24-26 and 28.The success of the Artemis 1 mission would be a huge relief to the US space agency after years of delays and cost overruns.
