NASA’s huge “Mega Moon rocket” is being removed from its launchpad and sent for repairs after failing three fuel tests in two weeks. Following the failures, NASA has said that the rocket’s slated June launch window will be “challenging” to meet. 

The space agency has been running various prelaunch tests on the rocket, officially known as the Space Launch System (SLS), since April 1, two weeks after it was brought out to Pad 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. NASA hoped that the tests, known as the “wet dress rehearsal,” would take less than 48 hours to complete, but two weeks and three trials later, the agency has decided to bring the 322-foot-tall (98 meters) rocket back inside.
