Space Launch System Arrives Back at Launch Pad for Launch Dress Rehearsal
KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. (NASA PR) — At approximately 8:20 a.m. EDT, NASA’s Artemis I Moon rocket arrived at the spaceport’s launch complex 39B after an eight-hour journey ahead of the next wet dress rehearsal attempt.
Teams will work to secure the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft and mobile launcher to ground support equipment at the launch pad and ensure that the rocket is in a safe configuration in preparation of the upcoming tanking test, planned for approximately two weeks after the rocket arrives back at the pad.
NASA is streaming a live view of the rocket and spacecraft at the pad on the Kennedy Newsroom YouTube channel.

I hope the problems are fixed as they only have around 10-15 cycles left before they have to worry about metal fatigue.
The snivelers and whiners cannot stop themselves from posting comments full of hope.
You seem unable to stop seeing disagreement with you, as a desire for catastrophic failure…
Given the sizeable sunk cost, I think we all at want it to show it can at least Perform As Advertised.
Nothing will be gained by anyone, if it doesn’t.
You seem like you cannot stop either. Which are you?
Oh, I don’t know. A good show could perhaps be gained. And it would certainly end the suspense and let the U.S. get on with going to the Moon on Starships as God – or at least “Rocket Jesus” – intends.
A little less fanfare this time
Want some cheese to go with that?
Cheese only goes well with whine, not snark. Interesting that you apparently can’t tell the difference. But then you can’t tell the difference between disagreement and harassment either.
Better luck this time! Last wet dress rehearsal was a damp snafu.
Not related…but you brought it to mind.
…Elon Musk calls Biden a ‘damp sock puppet’…
