Inside NASA's Kennedy Space Center! | Week of Oct. 4, 2019
A full-scale mock-up of the Space Launch System rocket’s core stage arrived at Kennedy Space Center. It will be used to practice stacking maneuvers and other procedures before the actual hardware arrives to be processed for the Artemis I mission. Also, the Ionospheric Connection Explorer (ICON) is at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. ICON, which is sealed inside a Northrop Grumman Pegasus XL rocket, will be air-launched by the company’s L-1011 aircraft, Stargazer, as it flies off Florida’s east coast on Oct. 9.
