NASA’s massive moon rocket will roll out earlier than planned

NASA will roll out its massive rocket for a flight around the moon earlier than planned.

The agency had been targeting Thursday (Aug. 18) for the Artemis 1 Space Launch System (SLS) rocket to make the slow trek out to Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39B in advance of blasting off on Aug. 29. But on Monday (Aug. 15), NASA announced (opens in new tab) that the plan changed, with rollout moved up to Tuesday evening (Aug. 16). You can watch coverage of rollout beginning at 3 p.m. EDT (1900 GMT) courtesy of NASA.
