SLS Mobile Launcher

The Space Launch System Mobile Launcher topped with the gantry tower that holds the umbilicals and other access points to the large rocket when its on the pad has had the crew access arm installed. The arm, that can be seen sticking out from the tower up toward the top on the left, provides the walkway astronauts will take to get into the Orion spacecraft when the rocket is on the launch pad. The recent addition to the tower was seen at sunset on a recent visit to Kennedy Space Center.
