NASA rules out new Artemis launch in coming days, new date to be determined


NASA announces that a third attempt to launch its new lunar rocket would not occur in the coming days, after a fuel leak caused a second launch attempt to be halted. The current launch period for the Artemis 1 mission "ends on Tuesday. We will not be launching in this launch period," says Jim Free, associate administrator for Exploration Systems Development at NASA. SOUNDBITE
