Early Morning Artemis I - Nasa daily picture for August 29 (2022)

Artemis I sits on the Launch Pad. It is illuminated in the dark.

NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket with the Orion spacecraft aboard is seen atop the mobile launcher at Launch Pad 39B, Monday, Aug. 29, 2022, as the Artemis I launch teams loaded more than 700,000 gallons of cryogenic propellants including liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen. The Artemis I flight test is the first integrated test of our deep space exploration systems: the Orion spacecraft, SLS rocket, and supporting ground systems.

NASA waved off the Aug. 29 launch attempt after a test to get the RS-25 engines on the bottom of the core stage to the proper temperature range for liftoff was not successful.
