CNN reports that NASA’s Artemis I mission “will make a fourth attempt at its most critical and final prelaunch test beginning on Tuesday, according to the agency.” NASA Marshall Space Flight Center SLS Chief Engineer John Blevins said, “I’m very confident that we’re going to have a good test on Thursday with the modified procedures.

That’s why we do these thorough tests.”
