NASA plans June reattempt of moon rocket dress rehearsal

After weeks of inspections and repairs inside the Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center, NASA says it will attempt another dress rehearsal of their mammoth moon rocket.

The agency has revealed that the Artemis I Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft will be rolled back in late May and a wet dress rehearsal will be attempted in June.

Three attempts to complete the test in April were hampered by technical challenges, forcing engineers to return the 322-foot-tall to the VAB.

Back inside the facility, engineers replaced a malfunctioning helium check valve and performed leak checks, according to NASA.

700,000 gallons of super-cold fuel will be put into the rocket during the wet dress rehearsal, and workers will perform activities comparable to those required on launch day.

The rocket and spacecraft will be wheeled back to the VAB after the test to be prepared for a future launch.
