NASA announced, on Friday, that it will attempt to launch its uncrewed mission to the Moon, Artemis I, next Wednesday, after several attempts to launch the lunar device. 

The launch of Artemis I could be delayed once again after the minor damage in the launch facilities by Hurricane Nicole.

Senior Official at NASA Jim Free said that there was "nothing preventing" a launch on that date, adding NASA teams managed to access the launch pad on Thursday.

The rocket will be launched at 01:04 am local time (0604 GMT) on Wednesday.

Artemis I faced several technical hinders and other incidents which resulted to several failed attempts for the launch.

This mission plays huge significance to NASA and all humanity as it would pave the way to re-send manned lunar missions for the first time in 50 years.
