NASA’s Artemis mission faces more challenges as Tropical Cyclone Nicole moves in #shorts

NASA’s Artemis mission is having some bad luck getting off the ground. The most recent delay is thanks to Nicole, now a tropical cyclone. It hit Florida’s coast early Thursday as a hurricane, but winds have since slowed. NASA’s SLS rocket and Orion capsule were left on the launchpad to brave the weather. SLS was designed to withstand high winds, but public data from the NWS suggests that gusts exceeded the rocket’s threshold. Time will tell if the mission will be ready for a launch attempt on November 16, 2022.
