SLS/Artemis 1: The Mobile Launcher's crew access arm has been rotated into position at the Orion capsule's hatch, an operation that can't be done inside the VAB because of interference with access platforms; a technician in a white hardhat looks on

Back in the VAB and end of the SFN live

The rocket for NASA's Artemis 1 moon mission has rolled back inside the Vehicle Assembly Building after 4.2-mile (6.8-kilometer) journey from pad 39B at the Kennedy Space Center.

You mean this one?
Sorry, Jim. You can argue Cape Canaveral has more under its belt (and you'd be completely right), but KSC is the one people recognize.

(My 200th post!) Overall rollback time: 10 hours 18 minutes.
Could have flown from London to San Francisco in that time.

Not really.  Cape Canaveral has more name recognition.

No.  You have been following this thread, correct?   The information is in it.

When somebody knows it will be posted.  No need to ask.
