NASA’s Artemis 1 lunar mission leaves the launch pad for repairs (photos)

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida – NASA’s Artemis 1 lunar mission has returned to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) here after incomplete “wet dress rehearsal” attempts earlier in this month.

During the wet dress-up, which took place on KSC’s Pad 39B, NASA was unable to get its new rocket, the space launch system (SLS), through the full range of tests necessary to ensure that the vehicle is ready for flight. The agency has now taken the massive rocket back to the VAB for some minor repairs and adjustments.
