Nasa's Artemis 1 Moon  Pad for Crucial Tests

Rocket Returns to Launch

 Technicians at NASA are

 transporting the agency's huge Artemis 1 moon rocket to its launch pad for a crucial countdown rehearsal. 

The overnight journey

 took about 10 hours, with Artemis 1 arriving at the pad just before 10:00 a.m. EDT (1400 GMT).

Artemis 1 awaits another

 attempt to fuel the rocket and simulate a launch countdown for a critical series of tests known as a wet dress rehearsal

Artemis 1 will be the

 highly anticipated debut voyage for SLS, whose development has been marked by multiple delays and cost overruns.

The mission will fly an 

uncrewed Orion around the moon and back in preparation for future Artemis missions, which aim to return humans to the moon for the first time since 1972.

This will be the second 

rollout for Artemis 1. The first occurred in mid-March, when SLS and Orion emerged from the VAB around sunset
