On Tuesday 27th September, @NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft for the #Artemis I mission were secured inside the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) at @NASAKennedy Space Center after a four-mile journey from Launch Pad 39B ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Ian.

After the storm has passed, teams will conduct inspections to determine impacts at the center and establish a plan for the next launch attempt, including replacing the core stage flight termination system batteries and retesting the system.
