NASA’s teams at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida continue to prepare the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft back to launch pad 39B for its next wet dress rehearsal.

A few weeks ago, the massive rocket and the spacecraft were rolled out of the launch pad to make way for other launches after three failed rehearsal attempts.

SLS is technically scheduled for its first launch in June 2022 but that is still up in the air since it hasn’t yet completed a wet dress rehearsal.

These rehearsals involve a set of key trials which are designed to show that Artemis 1’s SLS rocket, the Orion Spacecraft and their ground infrastructure are ready for launch.

The first wet dress rehearsal began on April 1 and was supposed to wrap up 48 hours later but the team ran into many problems.

These problems continued into the second and third efforts till the rocket finally had to be rolled off the launch pad to make way for other launches.
