NASA delays mission- NASA has changed the plan for going around the Moon. They delayed the Artemis II mission from late 2024 to September 2025. Also, the Artemis III mission, supposed to land astronauts near the lunar South Pole in 2025, is now set for September 2026. But the Artemis IV mission to the lunar Gateway space station in 2028 is still on track.

Why the change? NASA wants to make sure the astronauts are safe. There were problems with the batteries of the spaceship during tests, so they need to be fixed. NASA says safety is the most important thing as they get ready for future Moon trips.

What the mission is checking The mission is testing important systems that help astronauts, like the air and temperature control. NASA is working on fixing the battery issue and a part that controls the air and temperature.

Looking into a problem from before NASA is investigating why some pieces came off the heat shield during the Artemis I trip. They plan to finish this investigation in the spring. The new schedule for Artemis III matches the one for Artemis II, which should give more information for the future.

Catherine Koerner from NASA says, “We are listening to what the equipment tells us to keep the astronauts safe. We will learn from the Artemis II test and the ones after to make Moon trips safer.”
