NASA cancels Artemis 1 launch due to Tropical Storm Ian

NASA won’t be trying to thread the weather needle with its Artemis 1 lunar mission after all.

The space agency was targeting the launch of Artemis 1 on Tuesday, September 27 from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC), on the Atlantic coast of Florida. That remained the plan as late as Friday (September 23), though NASA officials stressed they were closely watching a brewing storm in the Caribbean called Tropical Depression 9.
