In the early morning hours on June 6th, Futuramic was at the NASA’s Kennedy Space Center to witness NASA’s Exploration Ground Systems transporting the Space Launch System megarocket rocket and the Orion Spacecraft from the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) to Launch Complex 39B for the Artemis I wet dress rehearsal (WDR). It took teams about eight hours to move the rocket about four miles from the VAB to Launch Complex 39B arriving at 8:20 a.m. Monday morning.
Futramic’s Chris Clark was ready, with multiple cameras, to capture the all night and early morning rollout.
Artemis is the first step in the next era of human exploration. Together with commercial and international partners, NASA will establish a sustainable presence on the Moon to prepare for missions to Mars. Artemis I, the first launch of the new Space Launch System rocket, will send an uncrewed Orion capsule around the moon and back.
