We're closely monitoring #Ian's forecast while continuing to prepare to roll #Artemis I to the Vehicle Assembly Building, prioritizing employee safety. Data shows a slower-moving storm with a potentially more westerly track, allowing more time for a final rollback decision. (1/2)

Incremental decision-making allows us to preserve an Oct 2 launch opportunity. We continue to rely on
@NOAA, @SpaceForceDOD, and @NHC_Atlantic's valuable forecasting as we prioritize the well-being of our employees and our #Artemis I vehicle. https://go.nasa.gov/3LJajoH (2/2)

Crawler Transporter heading up the 39B Ramp.

Doesn't mean rollback is confirmed, but it's one step towards making it happen!

CT heading under the ML. I suspect they will just now wait for the call. Easy to reverse back out if they opt to stay on 39B.

The crawler transporter is making its way up the ramp at launch pad 39B as NASA gets ready to move the Artemis 1 moon rocket should that become necessary because of the threat from Tropical Storm Ian. Watch live:

Weather Monitoring and Rollback Preparations Continue

NASA continues to closely monitor the weather forecast associated with Tropical Storm Ian while conducting final preparations to allow for rolling back the Artemis I Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft to the Vehicle Assembly Building.

Managers met Sunday evening to review the latest information on the storm from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Space Force, and the National Hurricane Center and decided to meet again Monday to allow for additional data gathering overnight before making the decision on roll back. NASA continues to prioritize its people while protecting the Artemis I rocket and spacecraft system.
