NASA held a teleconference Monday night to discuss the upcoming Artemis 1 launch.

The date for the launch had previously been set for Nov. 14, but NASA rescheduled the date to Wednesday, Nov. 16, due to Nicole.

It’s scheduled for 1:04 am Wednesday with a two-hour launch window.

The flight will kick off a series of Artemis missions with the goal of setting up a permanent base on the moon that will ultimately lead to astronauts exploring Mars.

NASA leaders put on Monday to discuss preparations for the next launch attempt, which they determined is still on track for Wednesday.

The weather wasn’t the only thing that has been delaying success.

Its initial launch was scrubbed on Aug. 29, mainly because of an engine-cooling issue. On Sept. 3, its second scheduled launch date, a hydrogen leak was discovered, pushing back the timeline even more.

The spacecraft didn’t make it through Hurricane Nicole completely unscathed.

Officials said some of the caulk on Orion’s launch abort system came loose during the storm. Technicians have also been working to replace an electrical connector. But NASA said the connector will not impede the launch.

“We know we have redundancy in these other measurements, and we are still OK to launch. The unanimous recommendation for the team was, we were in a good position to go ahead and proceed into launch countdown with these measurements,” said Jeremy Parsons, deputy manager at NASA.

As for the weather, there remains an 80% chance of favorable weather for the launch.
