The Artemis I Moon launch might be postponed once more, and NASA can do little to prevent it.

The latest challenge for Artemis I, NASA's first significant lunar mission since Apollo, is hurricane season.

The mission team will meet tonight at 5:00 p.m. Eastern to discuss the weather report and will determine whether to retain Artemis I at Launchpad 39B at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) 

in Cape Canaveral, Florida, by early or noon on Saturday, September 24. NASA is anticipating favorable news for the launch on Tuesday, September 27.

Rollback might be initiated by tropical depression nine, in which case NASA would send Artemis I back to its rocket garage at KSC known as the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB).

The Moon rocket could withstand sustained winds of up to 40 knots and gusts up to 74 knots, 

according to Mike Bolger, manager of NASA's Exploration Ground Systems Program at KSC, during a Friday teleconference, but much more than that would need it to seek shelter.
