Here's that briefing on YouTube:https://youtube.com/watch?v=37tnhg4H5Xo
Charlie Blackwell-Thompson, Artemis 1 launch director, says NASA is “on plan” for rollout on Aug. 18 that would support a launch Aug. 29.
Blackwell-Thompson says NASA is continuing to review with the Eastern Range the SLS flight termination system, which currently supports two launches in 20 days (a period which starts before rollout.) She says NASA will factor that into scrub planning.
Vehicle Assembly Building High Bay 3 Platform E was retracted last night. ½ of the platforms are now retracted. Platform K will be retracted tonight, with B, C, E next week, starting on Tues. Join us today at 11:30 ET for an Artemis I mission briefing at nasa.gov/live

Artemis I Update: Platform D in High Bay 3 of the Vehicle Assembly Building was retracted leaving only platform F remaining, which crews continue to use for access to the vehicle.
NASA and @SpaceForceDoD have resolved an issue over @NASA_SLS flight termination system battery, enabling @NASA to confirm Sept. 5 as a backup launch date if SLS doesn't fly on Aug. 29 or Sept. 2, Orion prog deputy mngr Debbie Korth tells @AviationWeek
Have you ever wondered what it takes to assemble the most powerful rocket NASA has ever built? Watch documentary footage of our Space Launch System (SLS) rocket's transformation into the over-300-foot-tall launch vehicle that will return humanity to the Moon.Starting with manufacturing and ending with stacking operations inside NASA Kennedy Space Center's Vehicle Assembly Building, this is only the beginning of SLS's path to the pad.
