The Artemis test-flight to the Moon was back on track after a suspected hydrogen leak was fixed and fuel tanks were filling as planned, but at the last minute the launch was called off.
Artemis 1 is an unmanned Moon-orbiting mission that is aiming to open up the possibility of human exploration on the Moon and Mars. It is the first of many space exploration projects that is being planned by Nasa.
After these missions, if all goes to plan, a new set of astronauts will travel to the Moon in 2025. They would be the first humans to stand on the surface of the Moon since Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt, in December 1972, who were the Apollo 17 astronauts.
