NASA scrubs its first launch attempt of the Space Launch System

NASA postponed the first launch attempt of its Space Launch System.

Though successful rocket launches are never guaranteed, it is a significant setback for a program that has faced criticism for going wildly over budget and for numerous delays over the years.

The launch was scrubbed due to an issue that came to light with RS-25 engine number 3 during tanking operations. During their pre-launch broadcast, NASA mentioned that they weren’t able to troubleshoot the issue during their wet dress rehearsal in June.
