Failed moon launches expose NASA
NASA had to postpone the launch of Artemis-1 lunar mission twice over fuel leakage issues. What do the delays say about America's sliding space supremacy?
The way I see it this actually shows that NASA knows what they're doing and are being professional. When launching a multimillion dollar rocket with a thousand ways for it to go wrong you definitely want to take your time to make sure everything goes . This prudence helps keep funds, resources, and even lives from being wasted by botched launches.
That’s totally normal for rocket launches to get delayed there’s a lot that can go wrong, the Soviets used to just launch their rockets anyway and then they’d blow up and they’d try and look at the debris to figure out what went wrong
Being an Indian, I have deep respect for your reports, so do for the contributions NASA had done to the mankind. Failure of rocket launches are not new, and it happened to launches across the globe, including those in India. A failure shouldn’t deter an agency like NASA from pursuing its mission. None of us are competent enough to judge if the launch is wasteful. There could well be a mission behind it, like testing a new piece of technology, or testing a new scientific theory etc.
Im happy they take their time.
We don't need another Rocket Disaster from oversight. That last one killed the space race
Artemis is an enhanced vehicle, & problems are to be expected, which is why launches are cancelled until
the engineers are satisfied that all is well. Aircraft departures are routinely cancelled because of problems discovered before takeoff, & I don't hear suggestions to junk the airplane because of these problems.

Don't worry NASA will get it , they always do.
There is no failure. The 60s NASA rushed and took risks that cost money and lives.
As of March 2021, NASA in-flight accidents have killed 15 astronauts.
In each case the entire crew was killed.
The current statistical fatality rate is 3.2 percent.
NASA has done very well so far in all their explorations,
lets not get carried away because of some set backs.
They should have used the 1969 technology that never failed in several moon landings. Perfect performance without a flaw, but that technology was "lost" according to NASA.
It is baffling to see that they sent a manned mission to the moon in 1969 before computers.
But with all the modern technologies at their disposal, they are not able to send unmanned missions to moon
I don't understand why she has so much to say about NASA but didn't India also fail to put satellites in orbit last month?
NASA has done spectacular works for space and science... But sometimes mishaps happen..But keep going ahead NASA, all the best
I don’t see a rocket burn into rubble, I don’t see failure.
Comeon guys! It's a test mission.
I would say say a failure would not recognizing the issue and going passed “GO” that could be a much bigger problem than a setback for launch.
I too am not sure why NASA uses its own rockets instead of SpaceX to launch these missions.
What does it say about NASA? NASA is too way ahead of any organizations, that India can only dream about. A small set back is just a learning curve. When India can achieve anything remely closed to what NASA had then it can toot its pipe.
In August 2021, the launch of GISAT-1, an earth observation satellite atop the GSLV Mk 2 rocket, failed just 350 seconds after liftoff
2021年8月，搭载在GSLV Mk 2火箭上的地球观测卫星GISAT-1在升空350秒后失败
This doesn't prove anything those who try who fail, those never try never fails.
Kudos to all scientific community.

I actually have to say: with all these other rockets in the world that have been blowing up on the launch pad. I think this kind of shows NASA's expertise. They've learned to detect all this stuff before it blows up.
Ok let me understand something very fishing here , in 1972 they went to the moon so today almost 50 years ago can not go to the moon so the old rocket is better then today's rocket
Maybe they found some resources on moon which are rare and useful, plus it is easier to ferry stuff from moon then anywhere elsewhere in space.
Launching rockets is not like starting ur private car and moving it. It's a high risk venture and if u want to be safe, this is how to do it.
Astronauts going on manned missions should take a big life insurance before getting on rockets built by NASA.
Make Up Professional
Now it makes sense why India never have sent a man to the Moon yet.
So as NASA gets older, it's starting to have problems getting its rocket up? I seem to be having the same problem as I get older.
The big problem with NASA is po itical meddling, especially in the "glamorous" manned spaceflight program.
This is unnecessarily harsh and too early to conclude they are failing!
This makes conspiracy theories look . Went to the moon in the 60s but can’t do it again
