We have stopped flow of liquid hydrogen to the core stage due to an intermittent leak on the replenish valve. Teams are discussing a plan to send out the 'red crew' to the pad to torque packing nuts at the base of the mobile launcher.

Torque Packing Nuts, to the Mooooooon!
red crew = 決死隊がバルブを閉めに行っている模様、、

詳しく想像はできないけど、red crewと表現したくなるくらい危険な作業なのかしら、、

"packing nuts" – I learned a new term tonight, but what it has to do with the valve, I have no idea...

Elon musk should have bought Nasa instead
Torque packing nuts🥺🥺
Estava indo tudo bem na preparação do SLS para o lançamento. E então não estava mais. Vazamento intermitente na válvula de reabastecimento do primeiro estágio. Nasa avalia envio de equipe ao pad para tentar resolver. Janela de lançamento se abre às 3h04. Estamos de olho. 👀
This rocket is leakier than me!!!
ohno she's pissing herself again

John young would be proud.
I have been contemplating taking NyQuil to try to fight the virus that’s been attacking my body for the past few days but…RED CREW? What in the heck?

“So there I was, just me and my best pair of torque packing nuts…”

Can it be successfully launched on time?
Wonder if we’ll have another scrub
Well, I will admit, torquing packing nuts was not on my 2022 bingo card.
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
Just save a bunch of money and sub it out to SpaceX
These are words. That’s for sure.
Yeah cause sending in the Red Shirts has always worked out great.... oh, Red Crew? Well ok then... #Artemis #NASA
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
No way they actually launch this shit tonight 🤦🏼‍♀️
Artemis and NASA find its future credibility hanging by its nuts.
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
That was oddly specific. 😉
Don't panic Don't panic Don't panic

Those are some pretty tuff Nuts if you have to torque packing nuts.
Just send Phil Swift out there he can stop any leak
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
Must be one hell of a torque wrench!
In reply to @peSHIr
Woah. More leaks? Hope "red team" (people trained to go to the launch tower for minor repair work *while rocket is fueled*...) is OK and able to help the problem.
Deus adiuvet eos ut figere problema.
Big Apollo 11 vibes
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
ha ha if the leak is still not arrested after all this time, this could be a tough one.
Such a shitty piece of tech
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
Should we just rename ‘red crew’ to ‘red shirts’? Seems fitting.
I hope they can fix it. Flipping LH2. Such a small molecule. It is hard to contain.
Bro at this rate it’ll never launch
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
Bunch of fudge packers, get your shit together!!!!
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
That's not cool
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
Maybe hydrogen is just too problematic to use as a rocket fuel ?
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
Have the red shirts have considered using self sealing stem bolts?
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
I'll go make some coffee.
here we go again
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
Do what you do best and NASA that shit. You got this!
I have a feeling this rocket is not suppose to launch
In reply to @NASAGroundSys
I sure hope it’s not like the other leaks that stopped the prior tries for launching.
