NASA’s huge moon rocket is heading off launchpad next week

NASA is getting ready to rehouse its Space Launch System rocket following three attempts to complete wet dress rehearsal testing, none of which were able to be completed.

The huge rocket will now be rolled off the launchpad and back into its storage building, called the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB).

It is a four-mile journey from the Launch Pad 39B at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to the VAB

, in a process which will presumably require the same massive crawler which carried the rocket from the building to the pad one and a half weeks ago.

NASA has not yet confirmed exactly when the SLS rocket will be taken back to the VAB, but they have said it is expected to be early next week.

Before the rocket can be returned to its temporary home, the hydrazine from the solid rocket boosters needs to be removed and the spacecraft needs to be disconnected from the launchpad systems.
