Moon Rocket

A long distance view from the top of the Max Brewer Bridge in Titusville of the Artemis 1 / Space Launch System (SLS) rocket poised for fueling tests on Launch Complex 39B at Kennedy Space Center.  During the Wet Dress Rehearsal (WDR), a full-up fueling test and simulated countdown ending just before ignition, the SLS will be put through its paces.  After the WDR, the SLS will be moved back to the Vehicle Assembly Building for final checkouts before returning to the launch pad for its first flight to send an uncrewed Orion spacecraft looping around the Moon and back to Earth.  Its second launch will see the flight repeated with a crew of four astronauts aboard.
