NASA will attempt to launch a superheavy rocket to the Moon in September
A new attempt to launch the superheavy rocket Space Launch System (SLS) with the Orion spacecraft to the moon is scheduled for September 27.
“The launch is scheduled for September 27, with an alternate date of October 2,” the American space agency said in a statement.
It is noted that previously the launch was scheduled for September 23, and the postponement is due to the need for a number of additional tests.
Earlier attempts to launch a superheavy rocket Space Launch System (SLS) with the Orion spacecraft to the moon were taken on August 29 and September 3.
In July, the Agat organization said that the cost of a flight to the moon on the American Orion spacecraft would be four times more expensive than on the Russian Eagle, which does not yet exist.
