NASA's mega moon rocket rolls launchpad

Since the fall, the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft have been stacked inside the Vehicle Assembly Building, awaiting the Artemis-1 mission launch. For the first time, the Artemis-1 vehicle made the 4-mile journey from the Vehicle Assembly Building to launchpad 39B.

Space junk on collision course with the moon

The moon is about to get walloped by 3 tons of space junk, a punch that will carve out a crater that could fit several semitractor-trailers. The leftover rocket will smash into the far side of the moon at 5,800 mph (9,300 kph) on Friday, away from telescopes’ prying eyes. It may take weeks, even months, to confirm the impact through satellite images.
