Various NASA Twitter accounts with the photos.

Given the image catdlr attached above, I thought the nozzle was attached well before an engine is used, yet the photo implies they attached it very recently.  At what point in processing was (will) the nozzle be attached for SLS processing?  As well, are those components seen inside the aft skirt the HPU/TVC packages?
Thanks,  and good luck today!

I'm out there at ATK, here's a couple of shots of QM-1 ready to rock n' roll.  (when I can get them uploaded).

T-60 min and counting.  T-0 is 9:30 am MDT

I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.
