Nicole, with maximum sustained winds of 110 km/h, passed through Bahamas on its way to the Atlantic coast of Florida and it was unknown at the moment if it caused damage in that archipelago.

The storm Tropical is an unusual phenomenon at this time of year and comes a few weeks after Hurricane Ian, one of the most powerful to hit the United States, swept through Florida causing serious damage and more than 100 deaths in the state.

“Adjust our launch date for Artemis 1 prioritizes employee safety and enables our team to serve the needs of their families and homes,” Free, NASA associate administrator for exploration systems development, wrote.

NASA said it will leave the SLS rocket on the launch pad, where it had been placed several days ago. After two launch attempts were canceled due to technical problems, the 98-meter-tall rocket had to be returned to the assembly building to protect it from Hurricane Ian.

The cost of the rocket , which has never taken off, is estimated at several billion dollars.
