Artemis I lunar rocket ready to roll back to Florida launch pad | app

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. — NASA’s massive, multibillion-dollar moon rocket is about to make what could be its last terrestrial trip before its first celestial flight.

Artemis I, a combination of the Space Launch System, Orion Capsule, and Mobile Launch Vehicle, will make the slow 4.4-mile roll atop Tracked Transporter 2 from Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39- B at Kennedy Space Center with the first move scheduled for late Tuesday.
