NASA considers Artemis 1 lunar mission test a success

Artemis 1 Space Launch System (SLS) Orion rocket and capsule wrapped the wet dress – a series of around 50 hours of refueling tests and countdown simulations – on Monday, June 20. Mission team members noticed a hydrogen leak during refueling operations, but they’ve now decided it’s not serious enough to require an overhaul.
