While we wait for the rocket's departure, NASA is already providing some live images from the Kennedy Space Center.

What does "jacking" mean?
I've been a space aficionado since 2008. I love space.

Jacking has begun!!
Very slowly moving the crawler up to take the weight load of the rocket plus platform.

Jacking and leveling can be done on all 4 corners.



Some silly questions 😜



Another slight delay, first motion shortly before 6 pm EDT.
