NASA’s Space Launch System
is once again standing proud on the launch pad at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The gigantic rocket is being
prepared for its inaugural launch, but the space agency must first succeed at completing a full launch rehearsal
The Moon rocket rolled out
of the Vehicle Assembly Building earlier today to make the four mile (6.4 kilometer) trek to launch pad 39B.
SLS reached its
destination some eight hours later, arriving at 8:20 a.m.
The rocket was then
connected to the ground systems in preparation for the tanking test, which is scheduled to happen in about two weeks.
This marks the rocket’s second
return to the launch pad, as the NASA ground team experienced three failed attempts to complete a full-fledged wet dress rehearsal in April.
