Teams have just performed a planned pause to extend the mobile launcher Crew Access Arm (CAA) and lock it into its travel position. The @NASA_SLS rocket and @NASA_Orion spacecraft will resume their four-mile journey to Launch Pad 39B atop the crawler-transporter 2.

It wasn't just media attending this historic rollout! Folks who work on the Artemis program were able to bring friends and family out to see what they've been up to.

SLS/Artemis 1: By 6:55am EDT (1055 UTC), the Space Launch System moon rocket had reached the top of pad 39B after an overnight 4.2-mile-trip from KSC's Vehicle Assembly Building; the crawler-transporter is now slowly moving in toward the mobile launcher's support pedestals

SLS/Artemis 1: The crawler-transporter is almost done getting the SLS in position atop pad 39B; the mobile launch platform should be "hard down" on its support pedestals shortly

The jacking and leveling system on the crawler-transporter is now lowering the Space Launch System and its Mobile Launcher onto the support pedestals at pad 39B. This is the final step before the rollout operation is complete

While many were sleeping last night, SLS began the journey that many missions before took down the crawlerway and the views were spectacular.

A NASA spokesperson confirms the Space Launch System moon rocket and its mobile launch platform were "hard down" on pad 39B at 8:03am EDT (1203 GMT).

The rollout lasted 10 hours, 8 minutes, from first motion until the platform was secured at pad 39B.
