Nasa Artemis Moon rocket launch delayed

Washington Correspondent

“We’re not ready to give up yet…”

The words of a Nasa official after the abortive attempt of its next generation moon rocket, Artemis, that was due to lift off this morning on its pioneering mission to the moon – 50 years after the first Apollo landing.

In the last hour, the US space agency said it needs to analyse all the information and data that led to the problem in one of the rocket’s main engines but said it was on course for a second attempt on Friday.
