BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – NASA’s Space Launch System moon rocket, aboard the crawler-transporter, headed out of the Vehicle Assembly Building Tuesday night at the Kennedy Space Center for the 4-mile overnight trip to Launch Pad 39B, for the maiden flight of the Orion spacecraft on a voyage around the moon targeted for Aug. 29.
