MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. (WAFF) - NASA unveiled the Artemis-1 Space Launch System Rocket earlier this month.

The rocket rolled out of the Vehicle Assembly Building for the first time on March 17 as it made its way to the launch pad.

WAFF’s Liz Hurley was in south Florida for the historic rollout.


A couple of weeks later, the rocket will make its maiden voyage. On its first trip, the SLS Rocket will make a flight around the moon and back.

The massive space launch system is traveling by the light of the moon on the long, slow ride to the launchpad for a crucial pre-flight test. The path to the pad has been long and expensive. The SLS will travel all night and arrive at the launch pad in the morning. Its dress rehearsal is set for April 3 and the first flight is set for sometime this summer.

Destination? Around the moon.
