from the article –
“With NASA unable to launch today, the agency could try for one of at least two back-up days on which to fly Artemis 1 on its mission to the moon. If the agency solves the Engine No. 3 issue, it could try to launch again Friday (Sept. 2) or Sept. 5, weather permitting. If NASA cannot launch by Sept. 5, its next launch try would likely be in October, mission managers have said. “

FUEL LEAK DETECTED ON SLS CORE STAGE
“NASA has detected an “intermittent leak” of liquid hydrogen in the replenish valve on the core stage of the Artemis 1 Space Launch System rocket. Launch controllers have stopped liquid hydrogen flow into the core stage as it is reviewed.

Mission managers are preparing a “Red Crew” to head out to the launch pad to torque down connectors at the base of the rocket to try and fix the leak. The Red Team is a crew trained to work on a rocket while it is fueled or being fueled, NASA says.”

“Artemis 1 is scheduled to launch during a two-hour window that opens Wednesday (Nov. 16) at 1:04 a.m. EST (0604 GMT). If the recently detected leak cannot be fixed, the mission will likely have to target another liftoff date.”
