The Space Launch System moon rocket is on the final stretch of its rollback to the Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center.

For those of you who are wondering, the truck in front of the ML that sprays water onto the ground in order to condition the pathway for the crushing weight of the CT with the SLS and the ML. The entire structure weights about 21.4 million pounds (9.7 million kg, 10,700 US tons, 9,700 metric tonnes), according to the Spaceflight Now livestream.

Could have flown from London to New York in that time.

That's lightly different movement problem  :)
On the other hand, Booster 7 could have waddled back and forth between the BC production site and launch site several times. I suspect SpaceX could have unstacked an SS from an SH and moved both the SS and the SH back to the production site and into hi bays in that time, which is a somewhat more analogous movement problem. We won't know until they actually do it.

TSMU. "Tail Service Mast Umbilical"

SLS/Artemis 1: Once back the Vehicle Assembly Building, one of the first items on the agenda will be to inspect a leaking hydrogen quick-disconnect fitting and replace a suspect seal in an umbilical at the base of the SLS core stage; we got a nice view of the area earlier today
