NASA’s Moon Rocket and Spacecraft Arrive at Vehicle Assembly Building
KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. (NASA PR) — At approximately 2:30 p.m. ET, NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft for the Artemis I mission were firmly secured inside the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) at Kennedy Space Center after a four-mile journey from launch pad 39B that began at 4:12 a.m. ET Saturday, July 2.
Over the next several days, the team will extend work platforms to allow access to SLS and Orion. In the coming weeks, teams will replace a seal on the quick disconnect of the tail service mast umbilical and perform additional checkouts and activities before returning to the pad for launch.

Into the garage, out of the garage; into the garage, out of the garage. Back into the garage…
Isn’t that the way of most hobby projects??
Sure. When you put that much money into something, you don’t want to prang it by getting over-eager.
